Celebrating Girl Scout Week Around Southern Illinois

It's Girl Scout Week in southern Illinois!  Girls, volunteers and supporters are celebrating the movement's 104th anniversary by participating in a variety of activities and events.  

A glimpse of some of the fun:

Many Girl Scouts kicked off the week by attending religious services on Girl Scout Sunday, like these girls at Upper Alton Baptist Church

This Girl Scout themed cake from the Girl Scout Sunday party for Union, Pulaski, and Alexander Counties (UPAC) is so sweet!

Speaking of sweet, meet little Mariam from Woodlawn:

Each year, Girl Scouts shower the first baby girl born in Jefferson County during Girl Scout Week.  Mariam, daughter of Caleb and Abby, was born on March 7 at 3:12 a.m. ... 3/12 being Girl Scouts Birthday! 

Gallatin County Troops Visited the Courthouse

...And it's Officially Girl Scout Week in Summerfield...

...and in Chester, too!
