100 Years of Girl Scouting in Kenosha County

Girl Scouts of Wisconsin Southeast celebrated one hundred years of Girl Scouting in Kenosha County. 

By historical record, the first Girl Scout troop of the Kenosha Girl Scout Council was formed on May 5, 1918. Mary D. Bradford, Catherine B. Novack, and Matilda Hansen led the first troop that consisted of twenty thirteen to sixteen year-old girls who believed in their ability to reach their full leadership potential.

The centennial celebration was held at the Woodhaven Service Center and was attended by present and former local members, volunteers, Kenosha mayor John Antaramian, John Mielke from University of Wisconsin-Parkside, and Tara Panasewicz from United Way of Kenosha County.

Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker and Mayor John Antaramian issued an official proclamation observing Thursday, May 17, 2018 as Girl Scouting in Kenosha County Day for all citizens to join in celebration of the Girl Scout movement.
