    SPECIAL TO THE DEFENDE

    R

    With the 100th year anniversa

    ry

    of Girl Scouts approaching

    on

    March 12, I think its a great tim

    e to

    reflect on the impact this

    great

    organization has made on tod

    ays

    girls. Even though I havent be

    en a

    part of Girl Scouts for 100 yea

    rs, I

    can say that Girl Scouts has g

    iven

    me skills and lessons to last a

    life-

    time. It has been a part of my life

    for

    longer than I can remember, a

    nd I

    have countless memories.

    I have been afforded so ma

    ny

    unique opportunities like cam

    ping

    with 24 women CEOs or work

    ing

    with the Chicago Bar Associa

    tion

    Alliance for Women to learn

    in

    depth about the law field. I

    even

    traveled to Houston, Tex. for

    the

    52nd National Convention of

    Girl

    Scouts of the USA where I lea

    rned

    even more about topics like ma

    rket-

    ing, global connections and b

    usi-

    ness while participating in the

    Girl

    Scout Leadership Institute.

    However, I still find that ev

    en

    with all of these amazing leader

    ship

    opportunities, Girl Scouts

    still

    seems to stand for cookies, cam

    ping

    and crafts in the eyes of every

    day

    people. It is so much more. I

    t is

    clear that the Girl Scout formu

    la is

    building girls of courage, co

    nfi-

    dence, and character.

    However, with all of the develo

    p-

    ments, we still maintain our

    tradi-

    tions like the annual cookie

    pro-

    gram that is currently in prog

    ress.

    There is the new Savannah Sm

    iles

    cookie, a crisp, zesty, lem

    ony

    delight made specifically for

    the

    100th anniversary. Selling co

    okies

    even has a technological twist

    now.

    Girls market their cookies thro

    ugh

    social media and people can lo

    cate

    where girls are selling them by

    vis-

    iting www.girlscoutcookies

    .org.

    Oh, and 2012 is the YEAR OF

    THE

    GIRL! This effort is to focus nat

    ion-

    al attention on girls and the is

    sues

    they face, and, of course, celeb

    rate

    girls in this anniversary year.

    Girl Scouts has empowered me

    to

    become the fearless, courage

    ous

    young lady I am today, not to m

    en-

    tion it's where I have made m

    any

    good friends throughout the yea

    rs. I

    have learned to be a leader am

    ong

    my peers, especially seeing

    that

    there arent many Girl Scouts

    my

    age and how eyes jump open w

    hen I

    proudly exclaim my Girl Scout

    sta-

    tus. Girl Scouts is definitely

    a life

    changing experience.

    Girl Scouts turn 100Brookfield's involvement goes back almost tothe very beginningBy Chris StachContributing Reporter

    It scarcely seems like 100 years has marched by since Girl Scoutinghas come to the United States.On March 12, 1912, Juliette Low, of Georgia, made the historic,fateful telephone call to her friend, Nina Anderson Pape, that startedit all.

    "Come right over! I've got something for the girls of Savannah, andall America, and all the world, and we're going to start it tonight!"From that simple but forceful declaration was born the Girl Scouts of

    the U.S.A., although, at first they were called Girl Guides, a nametransplanted from their Great Britain "ancestors."In 1916, Brookfield resident Ethel Bouchard, who lived at 9410

    Congress Park Ave., liked the idea of Girl Scouts, so she wrote toNew York for information and was told that a troop must have aCaptain and a sponsor. She and other interested girls found bothwhen the Shroyer family moved into 4434 DuBois Blvd. in thevillage's Congress Park neighborhood, in October 1916.The woman who began Girl Scouts in Brookfield's Congress Park

    section was Elizabeth Shroyer, affectionately known as "CaptainBeth" by her scouts.The Suburban Magnet newspaper made the mistake of publishingthis on its front page for Oct. 15, 1918:"The Congress Park citizens held a peace meeting on Monday night

    at the schoolhouse. ...The speakers were... and [also] Mrs. H.Shroyer, who is at the head of the Camp Fire Girls."Captain Beth was not going to stand for such inaccuracy and fired

    off a sternly worded letter to the Magnet editor, W. Melville, whopublished it on the next issue's front page, under the headline, "BegYour Pardon."

    "Editor, Magnet: In the report of the peace meeting at Congress Parklast week ... you spoke of Mrs. H.W. Shroyer as head of the 'CampFire Girls.' Mrs. Shroyer is Captain of the Red Clover Troop of theGirl Scouts ... organized in August 1917 ... and has 24 members.[Signed] Beth Shroyer, Captain."This-60 member troop was known to be the first on the Chicago-Aurora C.B. & Q. railroad route. Was it the first troop in Chicagoand/or Cook County? That is uncertain. Around 1916 a few otherlone troops were forming in the Chicago area, but the Red CloverTroop was certainly among the first.The first patrol (sub-group) of the troop was the Whippoorwill. The
