Girl Scouts plan historic meeting

Girl Scouts of the Concharty Council will celebrate an historic moment on March 29.

It wil be the final annual meeting before ushering in a new era of Girl Scouting in Georgia.

Concharty Council, which currently serves more than 3,000 girls, has been serving people in the Chattahoochee Valley since the first troop was founded at Wynnton School in 1918.

On May 1, six Georgia councils, including Concharty, will merge to create a new council with its corporate headquarters in Macon, Ga. Girl Scouts of Historic Georgia will serve approximately 30,000 girls in 121 counties.

On March 29 from 1:30 p.m. - 2 p.m., at the Elizabeth Bradley Turner Center at Columbus State University, Concharty Council staff, volunteers and Girl Scouts alumni will share their memories as well as their hopes for the future of Girl Scouting.
