100th Anniversary Event Updates

2012 Tournament of Roses Float

With our Anniversary Float Committee energized and our float company, Fiesta Parade Floats, electrified, GSGLA is anticipating a spectacular entry in the 2012 Tournament of Roses Parade!

One of Girl Scouts' own, Renee Hoss Johnson, a dedicated troop leader and professional float designer, will be designing the Girl Scout Float! 

You can be a part of the float pageantry, too! Honor someone with a flower for the 2012 Girl Scouts Rose Parade float. Make a donation in honor of a loved one, Girl Scout Alumnae, troop leaders, Gold Awardees, Girl Scouts (daughters, sisters, friends) and Girl Scout staff and their name will be with one of the flower vials on our float. Click here to find out  more or click here to order your vial today!
