Girl Scouts Celebrate Centennial

Tuesday, March 13, 2012

More than 600 Girl Scouts from East County gathered at Santee’s Town Center Community Park Monday evening for the 100th Anniversary Sunset Celebration.

“The whole setting was just so beautiful,” said Mary Ann Angeles, a Girl Scout leader from Lakeside who served as emcee of the event. “We couldn’t have asked for a better day.”

The hour-long centennial event included a flag ceremony, reciting the Girl Scout promise, a friendship circle and a sing-a-long.

“It was like having a big camp fire without the camp fire,” Angeles said. “Everyone was singing. It was awesome. We had girls from kindergarten through high school."

Special guests included Jo Dee Catlin Jacob, chief executive officer of the Girl Scouts' San Diego-Imperial Council, and 80-year-old Girl Scout Virginia Mullen.
