Montclair Plaza Wishes Girl Scouts a Great 100th


This year is the 100th anniversary of Girl Scouts of America, and the organization is holding celebrations around the country—in parks, schools, malls, and more. In celebration of the centenary Montclair Plaza held Mall Madness, an overnight party for over 1,600 Girl Scouts.

The event sounds like it was all kinds of fun. The girls had tons of activities to take part in, including crafts, games, Karaoke and Zumba. Dinner was catered by Alberto’s Mexican food, and yummy snacks were available throughout the evening. A DJ and a photo booth rounded out the fun. To top it off, several of the Girl Scouts modelled in a fashion show for their peers, showing off clothes from favorite shops like Wet Seal, Rue21 and Hot Topic.

While the girls were there, they also worked to set the first record for World’s Largest Friendship Circle. If you don’t know, a friendship circle is a scouting tradition, representing the unbroken chain of friendship between Girl Scouts. The group forms a large circle and each girl crosses her right arm over her left, holding the hands of the girls standing on both sides of her. A designated scout squeezes a hand gently, and the girls pass that gesture down until it travels the whole way around. As you can imagine, 1600 people makes quite the circle.

The party ended with the girls taking home Girl Scout Fun patches and fun-filled backpacks courtesy of Montclair Plaza.

    It is great fun for the girls, troop leaders and the moms. I work for Quincy Mall in Quincy Illinois and our local Girl Scout orgainizaton has a Girl Scout Lock-In event every other year. I haved worked for the mall for 16 years and they have done it longer than that. The moms are now taken their daughters to this event that they went to when they were little.
