Troops Celebrate 100 Years of Girl Scouts!


On June 9, 2012 members from every GSEP service unit joined 200,000 other girl souts during the Rock the Mall:
100th Anniversary Sing-Along celebration in Washington D.C. Pennsylvania had the second largest contingency of registered participants. Way to go for our members and state!

Troop #871 from Northampton SU #725 celebrated the 100th anniversary Girl Scouts with their very own “Cup Cake Wars”.  The girls decorated the cup cakes with some of the following themes: camping, nature, deforestation and re-growth, 100th Birthday and Mother Earth.  The used fondant, icing, sprinkles, parsley and cookies.  Each girl told us where their inspiration came from and what Girl Scouts means to them. 

Troop #2075 celebrated the 100th birthday of Girl Scouts with games where the girls had to hang upside down for 100 seconds, dribble the baseball, hula hoop, jump rope or hop on one foot 100 times without stopping.

Palmerton Service Unit celebrated the 100th anniversary by painting business windows with messages of the 100th birthday.  That is only the beginning though.  Palmerton Service Unit will have its’ big celebration in May!

What do Girl Scouts do when they grow up? Play roller derby! More than 1 dozen Lehigh Valley Roller Girls (some not pictured) were or are current Girl Scouts. Here they are honoring the 100th Anniversary of Girl Scouts. After the picture was taken they broke into a spontaneous rendition of Make New Friends. 

It was wonderful to hear all of these ladies speak so fondly and excitedly about their scouting experience.

In honor of the 100 Year Anniversary Celebration, a troop in Montgomery County set a special target for this year’s cookie sales: to raise enough money to attend the Century of the Girl Expo! Looking at their thermometer goal, these Girl Scouts are well on their way!
