Council Quest – Troop 200: The Pioneers
October 10, 2021 @ 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm$10 – $15
In 1924, Josephine Holloway attended a training session with Girl Scout’s founder Juliette Gordon Low and requested to start an official troop. Her request was denied, but she began an unofficial troop for Black girls, using a copy of the Girl Scout handbook to lead her troop. Holloway courageously persevered for almost 2 decades until finally, in 1942 she was able to establish Troop 200 – Nashville’s first African American Girl Scout troop. Join us and imagine yourself as a member of troop 200, what was it like? How is your world now shaped by the pioneering acts of others and how can you become the next pioneer? Snack will be provided.
Girl fee: $10
Non-registered Girl fee: $15
