Girl Scouts of Colorado recognized Day of the Dead with a community event at Regis University on Thursday evening, Nov. 1st. More than 100 girls and their families participated in the event, which celebrated the life of Girl Scouts’ late founder, Juliette Gordon Low, who would have been 152 on Oct. 31st. Activities during the event included Day of the Dead rituals such as sugar skull decorating and an altar for Girl Scouts’ founder and loved ones participants wanted to honor. Participants also enjoyed some Girl Scout activities, such as dressing up in vintage uniforms and making dream catchers and dream boards. Special thanks goes to Regis University for being the co-sponsor of this event.
