    Let's try to concentrate on the overwhelmingly positive image of Scouting which the organization has built up in its one hundred years in existence. That is the purpose of this thread - to celebrate its positive values in the centennial year of its existence.

    Robert Baden-Powell, the founder of the Scouting movement, was born 155 years ago today, in 1857.

    Girl scouts changed (and continues) to change a lot of lives for the better.

    I don't even like cookies, but I see the scouts outside Walmart with their troop leaders, and can't help but buy them. I love the diversity, the positive you-can-do-this attitude. :)
    Hey there's always someone who wants a cookie, right?!

    Thin Mints are crack. 'Nuff said.

    I see the girl scouts, and absolutely HAVE to purchase the Thin Mint cookies, no matter what else happens. I could be in a 9.0 earthquake, things falling down around me, and I'll save the Thin Mints before any thing/one else.

    Other than the evil influence of their Thin Mints, I agree...Scouting in general, and Girl Scouting, is a wonderful, enormously good opportunity. I was involved for a long time in my wild youth, and it was a ball. I can still think back on those meetings, and smile...

    Best-
