A look back: August 2020

Girl Scouts from Homewood, Flossmoor and Glenwood will have the trip of a lifetime in summer 2022 when they travel to Savannah, Georgia, the birthplace of the Girl Scouts of America.

Savannah was the home of Juliette Gordon Low, who founded the Girl Scouts in 1912. 

Visiting her birthplace, now an historical home, will get the girls a special recognition pin to be worn on their Girl Scout vests. They’ll also have the chance to earn badges, including one for etiquette, by participating in an afternoon tea.

But first, troops are trying to . . .
