MT. VERNON — Today is the 108th anniversary of the founding of the Girls Scouts of the U.S.A., and in Mt. Vernon, mayor John Lewis has signed a proclamation honoring the local girls scouts and urging citizens to support these future leaders of the community.
Sheila Jolly-Scrivner is the Jefferson County Girl Scout Service Unit Director. She says the organization continues to provide plenty of opportunities for area girls.
