Freeport, Illinois – As part of the Living History Series, the Freeport Public Library will host Betsey Means on Wednesday, October 19, at 6:30 p.m. in the Meeting Rooms. The performance will be: “Daisy’s Girls: Camping with Juliette Gordon Low.”
A wealthy socialite of the United States and Great Britain, Juliette Gordon Low spent most of her life enjoying the recreations of the privileged classes.
After meeting the founder of the Boy Scouts, Sir Robert Baden-Powell, she discovered a social cause to which she would devote the rest of her life. An enthusiastic organizer and fundraiser, she led the formation of the Girl Scouts of the USA in 1912. By the time of her death, the Girl Scouts had become a successful national organization with thousands of members.
These events are free and open to the public. Cookies and coffee are courtesy of the Freeport Public Library Foundation.
