Girl Scout Week Proclamation
Several local Girl Scouts visited City Hall on March 7 to receive their City Council proclamation honoring Girl Scout Week from Mayor Harry Rediger. The proclamation text is as follows:
Whereas, March 12th, 2016, marks the 104th anniversary of Girl Scouts of the USA, founded by Juliette Gordon Low in 1912 in Savannah, Georgia; and
Whereas, throughout its long and distinguished history, Girl Scouting has inspired millions of girls and women with courage, confidence, and character to make the world a better place; and
Whereas, through the Girl Scout Leadership Experience girls develop the skills and lessons that will serve them throughout their lives so that they may contribute to their communities; and
Whereas, Girl Scouting takes an active role in increasing girls’ awareness of the opportunities in math, science, sports, technology, and many fields of interest that can expand their horizons; and
Whereas, almost three million current Girl Scout members nationwide will be celebrating 104 years of this American tradition, and welcome girls from every background to join the more than
50 million women who are former Girl Scouts and living proof of the impact of this amazing Movement.
Now, Therefore, Be It Resolved that I, Harry E. Rediger, Mayor of the City of Cape Girardeau, Missouri, do hereby proclaim the week of March 7th, 2016 as Girl Scout Week in the City and do hereby applaud the commitment Girl Scouting has made to support the leadership development of girls nationwide.
In Witness Whereof I have hereunto set my hand and caused to be affixed the Seal of the City of Cape Girardeau, Missouri, this 7th day of March 2016. Harry E. Rediger, Mayor
