This Day in History: 1962-02-10
The Golden Anniversary of the Girl Scouts of America was celebrated in a ceremony at the Mahwah High School by local scouts and Brownies. Mrs. Donald Zackrone, Chairman of the Juliette Low Anniversary Celebration presided and read a letter from President John F. Kennedy congratulating the Scouts on their anniversary. The members of the six Brownie troops and the six Scout troops voted to contribute all the money which they gave annually to the World Friendship Fund to the Mahwah-Allendale Chapter of the American Field Service to help bring two foreign students to Mahwah High School for a year. The Girl Scout Council announced a matching contribution.
