For Girl Scouts, Halloween is much more than costumes and candy – it’s also our founder’s birthday! In 1860, Juliette Gordon Low was born in Savannah and began a life that would ultimately lead to the creation of our beloved organization!
To celebrate, many of our troops celebrate through birthday parties, costume parties, service projects, and more! Check out some of the highlights from around council below!
If you’d like to submit your troop activities to GSWNY, please email photo(s) and a description to firstname.lastname@example.org.

“Troop 20237 came together to celebrate Juliette Gordon Low’s birthday at their recent meeting.

The girls brought in snack items to help fill the snack cupboard at their meeting place, the Dunkirk Free Library.”
