This month, Association 51 Girl Scouts celebrated the 100th Anniversary of the founding of our organization (March 12, 1912) with a variety of activities. AMong them: a Cosmic Bowling party for teens and an open house sponsored by SU 51-7.
On March 10, Ambassador Troop 878 of SU 5-5 sponsored a Cosmic Bowling event at Bowl America Dranesville for Girl Scouts in grades 8-12 throughout Association 51. As part of the event, the girls collected about $80 for the Juliette Low World Friendship Fund.
“Quite a lot of older Girl Scouts attended and got a chance to have a fun evening of their own,” said Cyndie Lipari, a co-manager for SU 51-5 and treasurer for Association 51. “Our thanks goes to the Troop 878 Ambassador Girl Scouts for taking the initiative to create and run a successful teen event!”
"It's good to spend time with the troop. This is something that can a make a lot of really nice memories," said Shahreen, of Troop 2551.
"I like how I won the raffle because I've never won a raffle before and it definitely made my night a lot better," said Rupali, of Troop 4515.
On March 12, the 100th birthday of Girl Scouts, SU 51-7's open house at Floris Elementary School included swap-making activities; creating a video about Girl Scouting; a timeline featuring local Girl Scouts, including several former leaders who returned to celebrate the 100th; cake and cupcakes; and more. At the event, organizers also collected donations of birthday party supplies for families being helped by Reston Interfaith.
“At 7:12 p.m., all present joined hands in a special Promise Circle to commemorate Girl Scouts' 1912 founding,” said Arielle Masters, SU 51-7 co-manager.
