Celebrate Scouting

Hello all, Benny here. Did you know that this year marks the 100th anniversary of the Girl Scouts? Though it’s not quite as old as I am, this is an amazing accomplishment for an organization dedicated to helping in the development of young girls all across the world. To celebrate the centennial of the Girl Scouts, the Postal Service issued a stamp on June 9 commemorating the event during a special ceremony.

VP, Global Business Giselle Valera joined 200,000 Girl Scouts from around the world to dedicate the stamp at the Washington Monument on the National Mall in Washington, DC. The crowd participated in the dedication by singing “Let Us Show You the Scouting Stamp” to the tune of “Take Me out to the Ballgame.” The sing-along took place during a “Girl Scout Rock the Mall” event.

You can share your favorite Girl Scout stories on Facebook at and Twitter @USPS.
