Girl Scout Week 2014

Girl Scout Week is celebrated each March.  It starts with Girl Scout Sunday and ends with Girl Scout Sabbath on a Saturday, and it always includes the Girl Scout Birthday, March 12th, the day in 1912 when Juliette Gordon Low officially registered the first 18 girl members in Savannah, Georgia.
