Service Centers & Council Shops Closed Today; Service Center Cookie Cupboards Also Closed
In 1956, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. described Girl Scouts as “a force for desegregation.” As we celebrate Martin Luther King Jr. Day, we remember his legacy and continue to provide a safe space for girls that encourages diversity and individuality.

Our service centers and shops will be closed today, Monday, January 17, in observance of this holiday. Our service center cookie cupboards are also closed today due to inclement weather. Hours of operation for Tuesday, January 18 for our service centers, shops and cookie cupboards will be announced later today.
