GSACPC Girl Scouts “Rock the Mall” in Washington D.C.!

Posted: Jun 12, 2012

On Saturday, June 9th, six Girl Scouts from our council joined 300,000 Girl Scouts, Girl Guides and alumnae from around the world for the world’s largest sing-a-long, called “Rock the Mall”  to celebrate the Girl Scouts 100th anniversary. Girl Scouts from each state in the United States were present.

The Girl Scout Council of the Nation's Capital and Girl Scouts of the USA hosted the sing-a-long on the National Mall, continuing a long tradition. Girl Scouts gathered for sing-a-longs on the mall for the 85th, 90th and 95th anniversaries, but songs have always played a role in the Girl Scouts experience.

“Juliette Gordon Low founded the Girl Scout movement in 1912, and from the start, we have used songs to celebrate friendship and express our commitment to girls' leadership,” said Tamara Woodbury, CEO of Girl Scouts–Arizona Cactus-Pine Council. “We are thrilled that six of our Girl Scouts from our council are able to join the celebration during this milestone year.”

Attendees enjoyed a variety of activities, including yoga, a fashion show featuring vintage Girl Scout uniforms, and musical performances by a variety of singers—like pop band Savvy. The guest performers led the Girl Scouts in singing traditional Girl Scout Songs.

Girl Scouts Lisa Bowman, Francis Castellarin, Anika Hirsch, Abby Prosnier, Sophia Rennie and Brittany Sywarungsymun represented GSACPC well and had a blast!
