Huntsville Girl Scouts celebrate 100th anniversary with parade

Girl Scouts march down Sam Houston Ave. in Huntsville

Girl Scouts in Huntsville held a parade this past Saturday as part of their local 100th anniversary celebrations. Organizers invited Girl Scouts from all over the Council to attend. Around 300 Girl Scouts participated in the parade down Sam Houston Ave.

"For the first parade, this was an awesome turn out," said organizer and Girl Scout leader Margaret Carrell. "I think we had an awesome event with girls coming from all over to help us celebrate the 100-year birthday."

Following the parade, Girl Scouts filled a time capsule with Girl Scout mementos, participated in a sing along, made gifts for a local assisted living facility, learned how to say the Girl Scout Promise in Spanish, designed future uniforms and more. Sounds like a fantastic event!
