Girl Scouts of the USA is the world’s preeminent organization dedicated solely to girls—all girls—where, in an accepting and nurturing environment, girls build
character and skills for success in the real world. In partnership with committed adult volunteers, girls develop qualities that will serve them all their lives, like
leadership, strong values, social conscience, and conviction about their own potential and self-worth.
Founded in 1912 by Juliette Gordon Low, Girl Scouts' membership has grown from 18 members in Savannah, Georgia, to 3.2 million members throughout the United States,
including U.S. territories, and in more than 92 countries through USA Girl Scouts Overseas.
As a part of the nationwide celebration, the Girl Scouts of Citrus will be gathering at the Volusia County Fairgrounds to create the largest human trefoil ever made.
It will be captured by a photographer flying overhead.
We have compiled all of the ash histories that were given to us during the event and have compiled a master list for you to download. If you still need to get your ashes from the event, please email Troop Leader and Fire & Ashes Chair Lisa Rispoli. You may download the Fire and Ashes PDF GSGG Ashes 2012.

Weather and Fire Threat permitting we will be having a small fire in which the girls and leaders can add their troop ashes. There will be a listing of all the gathered troop histories of the ashes posted at the event and on the website after. Troops can email their histories prior to the event so that we can compile as many as possible for display on that day, to date we have compiled ashes dating back to Juliette’s fires from 1920!!
Troops will need to bring their ashes prepared in some form of combustible package. (i.e.: colorful tissue paper packages twisted on the ends ready to toss into the fire.) NO plastic baggies, NO rubber band ties, please use cotton yarn or thread for ties.
Ashes will be made available through service unit managers after the event for the troops who participated.
