Girl Scout birthday bash @ Tuckerton

On Saturday March 10th the Tuckerton Library partnered with the Girl Scouts to celebrate 100 years of Girl Scouting. 

Hosted by Troop 277 with Leader Lauren Babcock, 71 participants were greeted and led through a reading of the Juliette Low story.  This was followed by the girls sharing songs and bits of Girl Scout humor and trivia with visitors, other troops, family, and friends. 

Tuckerton Mayor George “Buck” Evans was on hand to present a proclamation declaring 2012 as the “Year of the Girl” to applaud the Girl Scouts for their 100 years of leadership and expertise as the voice for and of girls. 

Candles were lit on a cake and happy birthday was sung to the Girl Scouts from all in attendance.  The honor of blowing out the candles was given to Peggy Jacobi who was the person behind starting Girl Scouting in the Tuckerton area many years ago. 

All of the girls were able to do crafts as they enjoyed various beverages, snacks, cupcakes and cookies. A group picture was taken that included Mayor Evans, Librarian Toni Smirniw, local Historian Cathy Grant, Girl Scout leaders and girls from Troops 277, 332, 457, 113, 83, 162, 338, 303, and Juliette members. 

The event ended with everyone forming the friendship circle and singing the farewell song.
