Once upon a time, a group of girls in Savannah gathered for a meeting.The goal was to become part of the community, play outside and develop physically, mentally and spiritually. A century later, more than 3.2 million Girl Scouts meet worldwide, with more than 50 million alumnae. To celebrate, four girls from a Forsyth County troop are organizing a Girl Scout reunion, welcoming area Scouts from the past 100 years.“Lots of people don’t know that if those alumnae hadn’t chosen to be Girl Scouts, then Girl Scouts wouldn’t be around today,” said fifth-grade Scout Lucia Morris.
