    This trail has a clubhouse. Come on in and meet some new Brownie friends! Campbell lives with her mom and her little sister, Sage — and her new dog, Tango. She is happiest outdoors, especially on her skateboard. Social studies and Spanish are her favorite subjects. She has just moved to Green Falls, and her family is still trying to unpack. In the summer, she likes to grow tomatoes with her mother in their garden. Jamila has lived in Green Falls her whole life. She lives with her dad and her brother, TJ. They have a cat named Fredrick. Jamila loves to read and she likes to take things apart just to see how they work. Sometimes she has trouble putting them back together. Her dad wasn’t too happy when she opened up the family computer. Alejandra lives just outside Green Falls — on a big rancho with her parents and her abuela and abuelo. Alejandra loves animals, especially horses. She has a pony named Ladybug. She spends a lot of time going on hikes with her abuelo. He has taught her a lot about the outdoors. Alejandra also loves to paint and draw, especially pictures of the woods around the rancho. Brownie Elf loves being a Brownie. She has a Scottish grandmother who knows everything about Brownies. “Don’t be afraid to mix old treasures with new adventures,” Grandmother Elf says. She also tells Brownie Elf that in order to be a full elf, she needs to help a group of Girl Scout Brownies. And so she sends young Brownie Elf on a quest to find those Girl Scouts.

    Juliette Gordon Low’s nickname was “Daisy.” Here are some highlights from her life. When the United States entered World War I, Daisy asked Girl Scouts to volunteer in hospitals, sew for the Red Cross, assist servicemen at railroad stations, and grow vegetables. In 1917, she organized the first troop in the United States for girls with physical disabilities. Daisy started the first Girl Scout troop with 18 girls in Savannah, Georgia, on March 12, 1912. Daisy paid all the expenses to keep the Girl Scouts going; when the money ran out, she sold her pearls. Daisy made her plans and acted upon them. She often said, “Whatever you take up, do it with all your might and stick to it!” Daisy believed in wasting nothing. She really did live the Girl Scout Law! When there was a disagreement, Daisy would say, “Let’s ask the girls. They will decide whether the plan is good or not. You can trust them to know.” Juliette Gordon Low, 1887, by Edward Hughes (1832-1908). Oil on canvas. The National Portrait Gallery, Smithsonian Institution, Washington, D.C. Most of all, Daisy loved spending time with the girls. She often said to other volunteers, “We must never lose sight of the girls. The girls must come first.” She loved to dance. Even her camping house had a place for girls to dance and have tea. 72 BROWNIE QUEST
