Girl Scouts from Troop 3515 stopped by KGH on Monday, October 31, to
drop off a basket of goodies for the first baby born on the anniversary
of the Girl Scouts' founder, Juliette Gordon Low, who was born in 1860
in Savannah, GA.
In developing the Girl Scout movement in the United States, Juliette
brought girls of all backgrounds into the out-of-doors, giving them the
opportunity to develop self-reliance and resourcefulness. She encouraged
girls to prepare not only for traditional homemaking, but also for
possible future roles as professional women-in the arts, sciences and
business-and for active citizenship outside the home. Girl Scouting
welcomed girls with disabilities at a time when they were excluded from
many other activities. This idea seemed quite natural to Juliette, who
never let deafness, back problems or cancer keep her from full
participation in life.
