Girl Scouts celebrate their 100th anniversary
On March 12, 1912, Juliette "Daisy" Gordon Low held the first Girl Scout meeting in Savannah, Ga. Now, more than 3.2 million girls and adults are members of the organization. There are about 40,000 members in the Los Angeles area.
An exhibit of the organization's history is on display at the Lanterman House in La Cañada Flintridge. The Girl Scout Centennial exhibit includes dolls, uniforms and other memorabilia.
The organization recently got developer Rick Caruso to back down after his office barred the Girl Scouts from selling cookies at his Calabasas shopping center.
