GIRL SCOUTS OF MIDDLE TENNESSEE CELEBRATE THEIR CENTENNIAL WITH JOAN HORNIG SPARKLE
Amidst a week of birthday celebrations, the Girl Scouts of Middle Tennessee introduced its own exclusive centennial jewelry collection created by designer Joan Hornig with a series of events over several days. It began with an intimate luncheon at the beautiful Nashville home of Sallie Bailey, chair of the steering committee for the centennial.
Juliette Gordon Low sold her pearls in the late 1800s to help fund the early days of Girl Scouting. Just as pearls played an important role in the early financial security of Girl Scouts, the hope is that jewelry sales along with cookies will help to secure Girl Scouts’ financial health for many years to come.
Events that followed included a cocktail reception hosted by Chancellor Nicholas Zeppos and Lydia Howarth at the Vanderbilt University Residence, a male supporters’ breakfast at Sunset Grill, and a luncheon at the residence of Gloria and Ted LaRoche hosted by Dr. Elizabeth LaRoche. The pieces continue to be available at gsmidtn.org or email Girl Scouts of Middle Tennessee to learn more about the designs. Happy Birthday to the Girl Scouts who build girls of courage, confidence, and character, making the world a better place!
