Girl Scouts celebrate Juliette Gordon Low

Juliette Gordon Low, the founder of Girl Scouts was born on Oct. 31, 1860. Juliette, nicknamed Daisy, started the organization called “American Girl Guides” in Savannah, Georgia on March 12, 1912, when she invited 18 girls to become a part of a movement that would develop their self-reliance and resourcefulness. Now known as the Girl Scouts of USA over 2 million girls are now registered scouts. Girls all over the world celebrated her 150th birthday on Sunday, Oct. 31, with different activities.
Girl Scouts of Texas Oklahoma Plains (GS-TOPS), the council area which supports west Texas, includes Sweetwater, Roscoe, Blackwell, Rotan, Roby and Colorado City. Girls from these areas celebrated Juliette Gordon Low’s birthday on Sunday afternoon, Oct. 31, at Camp Boothe Oaks, Girl Scout camp, south of Sweetwater.
Kristen Weber, representative from Time to Sign, an organization of Sign Language experts came to CBO and gave the group of 30 girls an informative and educational class on sign language. The girls were very enthusiastic and eager to learn signing.
