The Girl Scouts of San Gorgonio Council, consisting of over 10,000 girls and 5,000 adult volunteers from Riverside and San Bernardino counties, is hosting “100 Years of Girl Scouting” in collaboration with the Riverside Metropolitan Museum. Juliette "Daisy" Gordon Low assembled 18 girls from Savannah, Georgia, on March 12, 1912, for a local Girl Scout meeting. She believed that all girls should be given the opportunity to develop physically, mentally, and spiritually. The organization has grown from a troop of 18 to 3.2 million American girls and adults living in the United States and abroad. In addition, more than 59 million women in the country are Girl Scout alumnae.
The exhibit is located in the front lobby and consists of two main parts; the first is a display featuring artifacts from Riverside Girl Scout alumnae and the second a timeline stretching across one hundred years of Girl Scout history. The timeline, which occupies a full wall, is a narrative that combines three historical threads – local Girl Scouts, national Girl Scouts and world events – in order to convey a broader understanding of the organization’s accomplishments.
