Golden Girl Scouts celebrate the organization's anniversary

LAWRENCEVILLE -- Over the last 100 years, millions of young women have been Girl Scouts all around the world. On Monday, the Bethesda Park Senior Center is inviting all those who were once Daisies, Brownies, Juniors, Cadettes, Seniors or Ambassadors for the Girl Scouts prior to 1969 to reunite in celebration of the organization's 100th anniversary. The event begins at 2 p.m.

"There are a lot of people who attend the center who were in the Girl Scouts," said Nazanin Weck, resources and marketing coordinator for Gwinnett County parks. "It's a cute thing for the ladies to get together to share memories and photos."

There will be coffee and tea available, plus the famous cookies. There will also be a showing of the 1918 movie, "The Golden Eaglet," which was a silent black-and-white movie created to recruit new Scouts.

Attendees are encouraged to bring photos and other memorabilia to share with the group.

"I think it will be a really neat event for the women," Weck said. "Plus, this is your only chance to go since it is for the 100th anniversary."

Only seniors are allowed into the event, unless invited by one of the Golden Girl Scouts, but the guest still needs to be a part of the female organization.

It is $5 per person and advanced registration is required. To save your spot, call 770-564-4680 or visit www.gwinnettparks.com.
