Juliette Gordon Low held the first Girl Scout Troop meeting on March 12, 1912, in Savannah, Georgia. Today, the girl Scout organization continues to grow with 3.2 million active members who are dedicated to making our world a better place.  Not many organizations have left an imprint on the lives of so many young people. I hope that they have  many more years of success.
