MTM On The Road: National Girl Scout Day Celebrations in Mount Pleasant

Posted: Updated:

On March 12, 1912, the first troop of Girl Scouts were gathered in Savannah, Georgia with 18 girls present. Today the organization is 2.7 million in number with 1.9 million girls and 800,000 adults who all believe and live out the mission of girls changing the world. In honor of the coming National Girl Scout Day this weekend, we're taking you on a Tagalong morning with a few impressive troops in Mount Pleasant. Join us live at the Gourmet Cupcake Shoppe as we talk confidence, character and courage...plus some sweet ways you can support their endeavors!
