In honor of Girl Scouts upcoming 100th anniversary celebration, Girl Scouts of Colorado will join Governor Hickenlooper tomorrow, June 3rd, as he signs SB 197, the commemorative Girl Scouts 100th Anniversary license plate bill, into law. The bill signing will take place at 9:30 a.m. at the state capitol. Girl Scout volunteers instrumental in helping collect the 3,000 supporter signatures needed before legislators carried the bill at the state capitol, as well as local Girl Scouts of all ages who have also helped support the bill and Girl Scouts of Colorado’s President and CEO, Megan Ferland, will be present at the bill signing.
The Girl Scout Colorado license plate will be available for purchase without any special qualifications or donations starting in 2012 through Colorado’s Division of Motor Vehicles. Those interested in the Girl Scout license plate pay a one-time, $50 fee, just like other state specialty license plates, and the cost is added to that of licensing a vehicle.
More than 3 million active Girl Scouts and volunteers are joining more than 50 million Girl Scout alumnae across the nation in celebrating the 100th anniversary of Girl Scouting in 2012. Official celebrations in Colorado will begin this fall. This momentous occasion provides a unique opportunity to learn how Girl Scouting builds girls of courage, confidence and character, who make the world a better place.
