March 12, 1912

That's when it all started. Thanks to founder Juliette Gordon Low the Girl Scouts are celebrating their 99th anniversary this week.

Local commemorations include: A very colorful display at our very own public library designed and executed by our very own most dedicated life-long Girl Scout booster.

And a birthday party of sorts. The Chippewa Valley 99th Anniversary Alumnae Event. If you were ever a girl scout you are invited to attend as a special guest.

The festivities continue in April with the 17th Annual Women of Courage, Confidence & Character awards.

And then of course there are the (don't mess with my) cookies being delivered right now during Girl Scout Week 2011. If you didn't place an advance order keep your eyes open for the girls-in-green manning pop-up sales tables at various places around town for the next few weeks.

Or you could travel to Savannah, Georgia where, thanks to the clearing up of a little misunderstanding you can once again buy your Thin Mints and Samoas right at the doorstep of Juliette Gordon Low her ownself.
