Girl Scouts celebrate special day with seniors

By From page A8 | March 26, 2013

The 101st birthday of Girl Scouts was celebrated in style at Atria Covell Gardens earlier this month with two things that go together perfectly: ice cream and Girl Scout cookies.

Seniors at Covell Gardens had invited area Girl Scouts to join them for an ice cream social in honor of the day Juliette Gordon Low officially registered the first Girl Scouts on March 12, 1912, in Savannah, Ga. Their timing was perfect, as local Scouts were selling Girl Scout cookies at the time and brought along boxes to share.

A number of Scouts also brought along musical instruments and the afternoon was filled with music and singing by Girl Scouts of all ages, as well as those happy to celebrate with them.
