Happy 95th to the Girl Scouts

The Girl Scouts threw a birthday party at the Kirkland Library in March to celebrate its 95th anniversary. Troops in the Kirkland and Juanita service units were invited to eat cake, make crafts and test their knowledge of Girl Scout trivia.

Birthday items were collected to donate to the birthday corner at the Hopelink food bank. An exhibit of Girl Scout memorabilia was also displayed during March at the library.

The Girl Scouts organization was founded by Juliette Low on March 12, 1912. The first United States Girl Scout troop started with just 18 girls; current membership stands at 3.6 million.
