Kit Addleman in The Dallas Morning News: Girl Scouts marking 100th year by showing how organization has changed


As the Girl Scouts turns 100 this year, members are using their centennial to remind Americans that they’re more than girls in vests who sell cookies and gather around campfires singing “Little Bunny Foo Foo” and “Make New Friends.”

They conduct science experiments, learn about being smart with money and perform community service projects.

Girl Scouts of the USA is undergoing a reboot to modernize its image and try to reverse a declining membership...

“We still think the messages, as adults, are very valid, but putting those in the context of what girls today will listen to is what Girl Scouts has been working on improving,” said Kit Addleman, who grew up as a Girl Scout and is now on the board of directors for the Girl Scouts of Northeast Texas.
