Cache placed to commemorate Girl Scouts 100th birthday.
In 1911, while in England, Juliette "Daisy" Gorden Low began a close friendship with Sir Robert Baden-Powell, founder of the Boy Scouts and Girl Guides.
She quickly became interested in the Girl Guides program, believing that girls should be given the opportunity to develop physically, mentally and spiritually outside of isolated home environments.
She returned to Savannah, Georgia and on March 12, 1912, held a meeting to register eighteen girls as members of the American Girl Guides.
In 1913, the name of the organization was changed to the Girl Scouts, and in 1915, the Girl Scouts of the USA was incorporated.
Low served as the organization’s first president and gave freely of her own money in the early years.
Now, there are more than 3 million girl and adult members of the Girl Scouts of the USA.
Today is our 100th birthday so this seemed like a fitting place to put a geocache.
Please respect the grounds. You will not need to go into the flower bed to get to the cache.
Cache is placed at Osceola Girl Scout House with permission from the Osceola Girl Scout leaders. This little house was donated to the mothers of Girl Scouts years ago and is where all of the Osceola troops meet with their girls.
