Girl Scouts and Cherry Blossom Celebrate 100
New Girl Scout patch program
In celebration of the 100th anniversary of Girl Scouts and the gift of the flowering cherry trees from Tokyo, Japan to Washington, D.C., Girl Scout Council of the Nation’s Capital (GSCNC) and the National Cherry Blossom Festival have developed The Gift of Trees Patch Program. This program commemorates the gift of 3,020 cherry blossom trees from Mayor Yukio Ozaki of Tokyo to the city of Washington, D.C. in 1912 – the same year Juliette Gordon Low founded the Girl Scout movement in Savannah, Georgia.
