Our daily column, 5 Things You Need to Know Today, will help you to get your day started and offer you some fodder for water cooler conversation.
1. Yesterday, Framingham Girl Scouts, from kindergarten through high school, came to Bowditch Field to celebrate the 100th anniversary of Girl Scouts. There are more than 450 Girl Scouts in Framingham and the girls celebrated by forming the number "100." The Daisy Scouts formed the "1." A large group of Brownie Scouts formed one "0" and Junior and Cadette Scouts formed the other "0." Juliette Gordon Low created Girl Scouts in 1912, after meeting the Boy Scout founder in England. Last weekend, 42 Girl Scouts traveled to the nation's capital to celebrate the centennial with more than 250,000 Scouts from America and beyond. Tuesday's event was a way for all Girl Scouts in Framingham to celebrate the milestone.
