Girl Scout Week, March 8 through 14, is a time to celebrate Girl Scouting with your Girl Scout sisters! Embrace your spiritual connections and be of service to your family, your community, and your world.
Birthday in a Bag service project
This year, Girl Scouts of Kansas Heartland will be donating "Birthday in a Bags" to local food pantries to celebrate Girl Scout Week. A Birthday in a Bag is a self-contained gift bag with everything you need to have a birthday party.
Every person needs some recognition of their birthday, but sometimes circumstances prevent this from happening. A Birthday in a Bag can make a birthday more special. Girl Scouts can fill the bags with cake mix, candles, frosting, balloons, a foil cake pan, birthday-themed plates and napkins, cake decorations, and maybe a toy or gift. Deliver the birthday bags to a Girl Scout Office or to a local food bank, food pantry, or organizations serving youth in the community for distribution.
Be Girl Scout Proud on March 12!
Don’t forget to show your pride on March 12, which is the Girl Scouts' Birthday and Proud Scout Day! Girl and adult members are encouraged to wear Girl Scout uniforms or pins on March 12 to let their peers see how proud they are.
The Girl Scout Birthday on March 12 commemorates the day in 1912 when Juliette Gordon Low officially registered the organization’s first 18 girl members in Savannah, Georgia. This year, 2015, represents our 103rd birthday!
Show the world how Girl Scouting has inspired you with the highest ideals of character, conduct and patriotism. Take a picture and share your Girl Scout story with others, so they can join the fun! The Proud Scout fun patches are $1.25 and will be available in our council's Girl Scout Shops.
