Girl Scout Troops all over the country celebrated the birth of our founder Juliette Lowe on October 31, even here in Norcross!
Our troop each brought a "gift for our founder" from the dollar tree in place of their meeting dues. The gifts were something they thought our troop could benefit from! We got everything from bubbles to colored pencils to stickers and bandaids! Very fun.
