Girl Scout SloganDo a good turn daily

Juliette Gordon Low or "Daisy" was the founder of Girl Scouts of the USA, with the help of Robert Baden-Powell, the founder of the Scouting Movement. Baden-Powell had learned that girls wanted to join the scouts, but he felt that girls should have their own organization. He asked Low if she would like to be part of the Girl Guide movement, forming a group of Girl Guides in Scotland in 1911. In 1912 Low returned to the United States, forming a Girl Guide troop in Savannah, Georgiain 1912. In 1915, the Girl Guides became Girl Scouts and Low became the first president. She stayed active until the time of her death. Her birthday, October 31, is celebrated by the Girl Scouts as "Founder's Day". (SOURCE:
