|Girl Scouts Rock the Hoover Dam!|
More than 1,000 Girl Scouts rocked the Hoover Dam Saturday in a bridging ceremony to celebrate the 100th anniversary of Girl Scouts of the U.S.A. Girls traded decade inspired Girl Scout S.W.A.P.S. (Special Whatchamacallits Affectionately Pinned Somewhere), ate pancakes, walked the green carpet, and participated in a sing-a-long that included a rousing version of Happy Birthday.
A short ceremony honored the Girl Scouts local past, paying homage to its early beginnings, April 14, 1932, in Boulder City, during the construction of the Hoover Dam. As the girls began
their trek across the Hoover Dam, the crowd came to a fever pitch chanting "Rock the Dam! Rock the Dam!" An aerial photo was taken of the group courtesy of Papillon Helicopters and

In addition to the spectacular event on Saturday, the Bureau of Reclamation has also agreed to turn the lights of the Dam green for Girl Scout Week March 10 - 17.
On Girl Scouts Anniversary, Monday, March 12, more than 100 girls and their families turned out for the lighting ceremony. At 7:12 p.m. (1912 military time) the crowd sang Happy Birthday to Girl Scouts followed by a 10 second countdown and the Dam was lit green with the Girls Scout logo. The Dam will remain lit green each evening through March 17.
Girls in Action!

What was Troop 138's answer? Here's a hint: It's so bright, it makes them want to dance. Take a look.
