Lu Gaetje: A Proud Girl Scout

Posted: Dec 15, 2011

Lu Gaetje used to proclaim that she shook Juliette Low’s hand (the founder of the Girl Scouts) in 1925, shortly after beginning her Girl Scouts journey. For years to come, after meeting someone new, she would inform them that they had just “shook the hand that shook the hand of Juliette Gordon Low.”

Lu Gaetje was a proud Girl Scout, dedicating over 75 years as a Girl member, a leader, and staff member.
