Thousands of Girl Scouts gathered with friends and families at the Capitol on Monday afternoon to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the organization. As many as 3,000 were expected to attend the two-hour event.

Gov. Gary Herbert proclaimed Monday as Girl Scout day. As you would expect at such a gathering, the celebration included sing-alongs, a flag-raising and the recitation of the Girl Scout Promise. There are 3.2 million Girl Scouts, and more than 9,500 in Utah.
