2012 marks a significant milestone for New Mexico, for Girl Scouts of New Mexico Trails and for Girl Scout councils across the country — they all celebrate their 100th anniversaries.
The Girl Scouts of New Mexico Trails and the New Mexico State Parks co-hosted a Centennial Celebration on Saturday at Hyde Memorial Park in Santa Fe with more than 100 Girl Scouts, troops, families and members of the public joining in the celebration. Gov. Susana Martinez was the honored guest speaker.
The festivities began at 10:30 a.m. with the opening ceremony with Martinez. Following the ceremony, there was cake and activities provided by state parks, the Girl Scouts and community partners.
In the opening ceremony for the Centennial Celebration, Martinez awarded Lauren Marcus of Los Alamos and Stephanie Sugars of Albuquerque with their Gold Awards — the highest award a Girl Scout can earn. Martinez also awarded several Girl Scouts with their Bronze Awards, the highest award a Girl Scout Junior can earn.
Because of Marcus’ volunteer work at the Los Alamos County Animal Shelter, she noticed that work needed to be done to make the pets more adoptable. Her Gold Award project was titled “TAILS: Taking Action to Improve the Lives of Shelter Animals.”
