I wouldn’t mind having a United States postage stamp done in my honor when I hit 100!

That’s exactly what the Girl Scouts got – A brand new First-Class Forever stamp called "Celebrate Scouting" honoring the Girl Scout’s 100 years. Monday, March 12, marked the Girl Scouts’ centennial.

Young and older Girl Scouts were on hand to see the new stamp unveiled Sunday at the California State Fair. Mill Valley, California, artist Craig Frazier, "shows  large redwoods, a lake, a distant forested mountainside, and small ferns with a blue sky",

says spokesperson Julie O’Donnell, Director of Marketing & Communications, GIRL SCOUTS   HEART OF CENTRAL CALIFORNIA.

O’Donnell explained that the Girl Scouts celebrate 100 years of leadership, fun and friendship in 2012.

To honor this anniversary milestone, she said, the Girl Scouts Heart of Central California (GSHCC) has created a special exhibit for the State Fair called "Girl Scout Zone," highlighting how Girl Scouts discover, connect and take action to make the world a better place.


The exhibit was built with support from Richard Bay and Mark Baker Fantasy Builders, and is located within the County Buildings A and B at Cal Expo. O’Donnell encourages fair visitors to stop by!
