Willow Valley Residents who were involved with scouting and staff members of the Girl Scout Council gathered at our Cultural Center recently to share memories of their years spent with the Girl Scouts.
This year is the 100th anniversary of Girl Scout cookie sales and the women attending reminisced about their cookie-selling days. Girl Scout uniforms, badges, original handbooks, dolls and other memorabilia were on display along with a healthy assortment of Girl Scout cookies. The women learned about what is currently happening in scouting today and they even tried their hand at several STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) projects that Girl Scouts of today encounter.

Girl Scout Promise
On my honor, I will try
To serve God and my country,
To help people at all times
and to live by the Girl Scout Law.
