Girl Scouts Invade Hoover Dam for Anniversary Party | Community Spirit
Girl Scouts will take over Hoover Dam on March 10 to celebrate their 100th anniversary, gathering near Boulder City to mark the group’s beginnings in the area.
As many as 1,000 girls, volunteers and alumnae could attend Rock the Dam. In a symbolical bridging across Hoover Dam, this event pays homage to Girl Scouts of Southern Nevada's beginnings in Boulder City with 22 girls in 1932.
The event begins at 7 a.m. in the lower Arizona parking lot. Girl Scouts will be treated to a pancake breakfast. A short presentation will be made at 8 a.m. and participants will begin their walk across the Hoover Dam at 8:20 a.m. A commemorative aerial photo will be taken of the group on the Hoover Dam, courtesy of Papillon Helicopters and photographer Frank Carroll. The event is expected to conclude at 9 a.m.
Girl Scouts of Southern Nevada has 100th anniversary celebrations planned throughout 2012, including their upcoming Girl Scout Night with the Las Vegas 51s. For more information on upcoming 100th anniversary events open to the public, visit girlscoutsnv.org.
