Seventh annual event celebrates founder of Girl Scouting

DOVER, NH – Ten Girl Scout troops celebrated the birthday of Girl Scout founder Juliette Gordon Low with their seventh annual Cupcake War. The older girls hosted the Oct. 27 event at St. John’s Methodist Church, where each troop made 112 mini cupcakes for all to try, with decade themes like Dancing Disco Cupcakes, Rosie the Riveter, fall, Halloween, and Pac Man. Judges and the girls all voted for their favorite cupcakes. Dover Bowl, Lickee's & Chewy's Candies & Creamery, Roger's Restaurant and Pizza and Adelle's Coffee House donated prizes.

Along with the Cupcake War, the Girl Scouts hosted their second year of G.I.R.L. (Go-getters, Innovators, Risk-takers, Leaders)™ panel. The panelists included speakers from Rise.Run.Retreat – a running group for women of all ages, Otter Creek Homes, Jack and Jill School, and the Dover Children’s Home.

Juliette Gordon Low was born on October 31, 1860, and Girl Scouts mark the date annual as Founder’s Day. Low began Girl Scouts in 1912 in Savannah, Georgia, as an ardent believer in the potential of all girls and in the importance of fostering their individual growth, character, and self-sufficiency. Girl Scouting today carries on that vision as the premier leadership development organization for girls around the world.
