Savannah, GA - birthplace of Juliette Gordon Low
In August, Ambassador Girl Scout Troop 61054 from Hillsborough, travelled to beautiful historic Savannah, Georgia to the Juliette Gordon Low Birthplace for their HS Senior year Girl Scout trip. The girls planned and saved money and held various fundraisers for about three years in order to achieve their goal of visiting the Juliette Gordon Low Birthplace during the 100th anniversary celebration of Girl Scouting. One of the highlights of their trip was a tour of the Juliette Gordon Low House. The girls learned the history of Juliette and her family, and saw the Presidential Medal of Freedom earned by Juliette Gordon Low which is displayed at the house. This award is the highest civilian honor this country can bestow, which was presented on May 29, 2012, by President Barack Obama. The girls also took a scenic, yet haunted, trolly ride of downtown Savannah, they climbed to the top of the Tybee Island Lighthouse, and went on a dolphin sightseeing boat ride. Their favorite meal was a buffet lunch at Paula Deen’s restaurant, Lady & Sons, in Savannah. It was a wonderful and memorable trip and they would highly recommend it for other Girl Scouts.
