On Sunday, Nov. 18, the Canton Girl Scouts attended the 100th Anniversary of Girl Scouts at St. Johns Church.
The troops enjoyed activities and went around to stations to see how Girl Scouts have evolved over time.
There was a movie presentation, "The Story of a Girl Scout", a display of Girl Scout handbooks along with a slideshow of Girl Scouts from 100 years ago to the present.
Girl Scouts were able to learn the morse code, create ties for their water bottles, how to set up a sleeping bag for camping, how to start a fire and roast marshmallows, the meanings of signal flags and different methods of cooking while camping.
