Centennial Bridging and Sunrise Ceremony

I'm not exactly the biggest fan of the town we live in, BUT, we live roughly one and half hours away from the birthplace, so that does have a huge advantage.  As you all know, we just celebrated the 100th birthday of the Girl Scouts, and as such, my daughter, Mother and I were all able to go to the Centennial Bridging and Sunrise Ceremony.  I volunteered during the bridging, so I got very few photos (my Mother took a few of my daughter).  I did get a few good ones during the Sunrise Ceremony though, so enjoy!

Sorry the photo is so blurry, it's the best photo I was able to get of the bridge.  This was the ceremonial bridge the girls made that was up in Forsyth park.

It's a little hard to make out, but one of the Girl Scouts in the front is holding the Eternal Flame of Friendship!

Who else thinks the uniforms of the past was a wonderful idea?!

This photo is something amazing.  The woman on the right, with the hat, is Margaret Skene, the CEO of Historic Georgia. The two ladies to her left are women who were in the first black Girl Scout troop back in the 40s.  It goes with out saying, those woman are a part of history!

It's sunrise, gotta have taps!
Welcome second century!
Not the best photo (sorry), but that would be our wonderful CEO, Anna Maria Chavez.

Sing along time!
And now, for the Eternal Flame!
My cute kiddo gave me the flame.
And there you have it- 100 years of Girl Scouting!

Backing up to the Bridging.... there were literally people from all over!  I met people from Ohio, California, Texas (not including my Mother who flew in), Pennsylvania, New Jersey, North Carolina, Florida and more!  The Boy Scouts can poke fun at us all they want, but their centennial got nothin' on ours!
