This is a special year for the Girl Scouts of the USA. The Girl Scouts are celebrating their 100th year anniversary. One hundred years ago, in 1912, Juliette Gordon Low founded this fantastic organization in Savannah, Georgia.
Each year, around this time, we all look forward to purchasing Girl Scout cookies, including my favorites: Thin Mints, Samoas, and Tag-Alongs! But have you heard about the sad, recent news reports of thefts and robberies being committed against girl scouts who are selling cookies? So far, I have read about reports of such thefts occurring in Texas and South Carolina.
This is a sad state of affairs when girl scouts face such threats or danger from greedy thieves who would stoop so low! Here's hoping that this will not occur again any time soon and that the Girl Scouts will continue to be around for another century!
