COLFAX —  Girl Scouts across the country will be celebrating Girl Scout Week this week, March 10-16. This annual tradition is a week where Girl Scouts show their pride and lift up the worldwide sisterhood that began in 1912 with founder Juliette Gordon Low. The week kicked off with Girl Scout on Sunday, the 107th birthday of Girl Scouting on Tuesday, March 12, and ends with Girl Scout Sabbath on Saturday.

Girl Scouts Carolinas Peaks to Piedmont will celebrate with an open house event at all four of their service centers on Thursday. Service center locations include the Asheville Service Center at 31 College Place, Building C, Asheville; the Gastonia Service Center at 156 S. South Street, Suite 201, Gastonia; the Hickory Service Center at 208 Union Square NW, Suite 101, Hickory; and the Triad Service Center at 8818 W. Market Street, Colfax.

Girl Scouts and the general public can come by between 3-7 p.m. today to learn more about summer camp programs and meet camp staff, play fun games, create SWAPS (a Girl Scout traditional craft) and more. The council shops will also be open until 7 p.m.

Whether you are a Girl Scout alum, current member, dedicated volunteer or just want to learn more about Girl Scouting in your local community, Girl Scouts invite you to celebrate with them.
