Juliette Gordon Low passed away 90 years ago today on January 17th, 1927.
This message is from the beginning of the 1933 handbook (thanks Carolyn!):
Dear Girl Scouts:
I hope that we shall all remember the rules of this Girl Scouting game of ours. They are:
To play fair,
To play in your place,
To play for your side and not for yourself.
And as for the score, the best thing in a game is the fun and not the result, for:
“When the Great Recorder comes
To write against your name,
He writes not that you won or lost
But how you played the game.”
Girl Scouts, I salute you.
