The Girl Scout Organization is turning 102-years-old on March 12th. On this day in 1912, Juliette "Daisy" Gordon Low, gathered a group of girls together for the first local Girl Scouts meeting.
"She wanted to give girls the same opportunities boys have," says Gwen Taylor.
One of the well-known events the Girl Scouts host include their cookie sales. Taylor says the organization also works to build confidence for young women.
As they celebrate the organization's birthday, it is a great time for members to look back at the memories they have made while being a part of Girl Scouts.
"For me, it was about spending time with my mom because she was my troop leader," says Taylor.
