Town Square Celebration on Monday, March 12th

Girl Scouts from Sonoma enjoyed a fun evening in the downtown Plaza amphitheater for our Town Square Celebration of the 100th Birthday of Girl Scouting. Mayor Joanne Saunders was our featured guest and read a Proclamation from the City Council.  Along with some traditional Girl Scout songs, a candlelight ceremony preceded the countdown to 7:12pm (19:12 military time) with a Happy Birthday song to Girl Scouting.  A great event and lots of fun memories.

After the event, many families went to the Black Bear Diner for a special Girl Scout dessert and continued the celebration.

Special thanks to the City of Sonoma, Mayor Joanne Saunders, the entire Rank Family, and all the volunteers who helped with tonight’s program.  We also want to recognize the Black Bear Diner for hosting a special Dine & Donate all day, with a percentage of the proceeds going to Girl Scouting in Sonoma.   Happy 100th Birthday Girl Scouts!
