Saturday, March 12, 1 pm: Girl Scout Birthday Celebration: Short film screening and presentation by Alecia Orsini

Join us as we celebrate the 104th birthday of the Girl Scouts with a short film presentation and talk by Alecia Orsini. Alecia will narrate the 1918 silent film “The Golden Eaglet,” which explores the history of the organization. She will also discuss the exciting renaissance that’s happening in girl scouting in Falmouth.

Alecia Orsini has been girl scouting for 27 years. A lifetime member of GSUSA, she started as a Daisy, became a leader, and ran scouting for her home town. She also spent seven years as an educator and guide at the Juliette Low Birthplace in Savannah. Alecia will share insights into “the original J Low,” the spirited woman whose belief in the potential of every young girl ultimately changed the world when she founded the Girl Scouts in 1912.

This family-friendly event will be held in the Cultural Center, 55 Palmer Avenue, and refreshments will be provided. Admission is free but donations to the Falmouth Girl Scout program will be accepted and cookies will be available for purchase!1924 Girl Scout troop on library steps
