Centennial Silver Dollar is Great for Gold!

The sales of the 2013 Girl Scouts of the USA Centennial Silver Dollars has been growing steadily for the past few weeks, and coincides with the rising sales of the U.S. Silver Dollar as a whole, as reported by Silver Coins Today. We hope that all active members and alumnae will help GSUSA by purchasing this token of tradition, as a promise to continue the important mission of Girl Scouts. The coin represents the past 100 years, and is a symbol of our continuing commitment to equality and the advancement of young girls across America and the world. Please help us, as we move into another chapter of our already exceptional history.

Across the country, many are using the 2013 Girl Scouts of the USA Centennial Silver Dollar as a gift when a Girl Scout is celebrating a monumental milestone in her life.

In Louisiana, eight Girl Scouts received the coveted Gold Award while attending a pinning ceremony and reception at the Governor’s mansion. The Advocate reports that the girls who received this award were Kathleen Smith and Jordan Etheridge from Baton Rouge; Kristen and Sarah Grego, of Prairieville ; Danielle Blazek, from Gretna; Hannah Gaudet and Caitlin Moroney from Mandeville; and Allison Ducote, of Covington.

The officials presenting these awards were State Rep. Paul Hollis, board First Vice Chairwoman Linda Law Clark, and Louisiana East CEO Jackie Alexander. Included with the Girl Scout Gold Award Pin the honorees were presented with a 2013 Girl Scouts of the USA Centennial silver dollar.
