March 12, 2012 -- On Saturday morning, Girl Scouts from Oregon and Southwest Washington gathered at Pioneer Square to celebrate 100 years as an organization.
The public was invited to make a Girl Scout passport and travel through activity booths representing every decade of Girl Scouting, be a part of the Northwest's Largest Friendship Circle, grab a box or two cookies, purchase 100th anniversary gear at the Girl Scout store and see great entertainment from the Radio Disney Road Crew and YouTube sensation Savannah Outen.
Firefighters from Portland were also on hand to commemorate this milestone with stickers, fire safety information, and a tour of an antique fire engine.
