Girl Scouts centennial well worth celebrating in Georgia, U.S.

The Girl Scouts -- now officially Girl Scouts of the USA -- came into existence March 12, 1912, when a childless Savannah woman named Juliette Gordon Low recruited the first Girl Scouts at her own home. From the outset, the character-building organization for girls and young women was unusually inclusive for its time; Protestant, Catholic and Jewish girls are listed among its charter members.
