Girl Scouts Welcome Baby Girl Into Their Scouting Family
Juliette "Daisy" Gordon Low assembled 18 girls from Savannah, Georgia, on March 12, 1912, for a local Girl Scout meeting. She believed that all girls should be given the opportunity to develop physically, mentally, and spiritually. With the goal of bringing girls out of isolated home environments and into community service and the open air, Girl Scouts hiked, played basketball, went on camping trips, learned how to tell time by the stars, and studied first aid.
In celebration of this significant date in Girl Scouts history, Bree Kramer, DO, Attending Physician, Division of Pediatric Critical Care, Women & Children’s Hospital of Buffalo, and her Brownie Girl Scout Troop 70085, made a gift basket of books, clothes and toys for the first born baby girl on March 12 at Women & Children’s Hospital. Along with the basket was a card for the family with a photo of the troop enclosed.
“It is our way of welcoming her into our scouting family,” said Dr. Kramer.
In Girl Scouts, girls discover the fun, friendship, and power of girls together. Through a myriad of enriching experiences, such as extraordinary field trips, sports skill-building clinics, community service projects, cultural exchanges, and environmental stewardships, girls grow courageous and strong. Girl Scouting helps girls develop their full individual potential; relate to others with increasing understanding, skill, and respect; develop values to guide their actions and provide the foundation for sound decision-making; and contribute to the improvement of society through their abilities, leadership skills, and cooperation with others. Today, Girl Scouts of the USA has a membership of over 2.8 million girls and adults.
