Framingham Girl Scouts celebrate the 100th anniversary of the organization at Bowditch Field.

Framingham Girl Scouts, from kindergarten through high school, came to Bowditch Field to celebrate the 100th anniversary of their organization on Tuesday, June 12.

There are more than 450 Girl Scouts in Framingham, and the girls celebrated by forming the number "100" on the field, said Susan Petroni, volunteer coordinator of the Framingham Girl Scouts.

The Daisy Scouts formed the "1" while a large group of Brownie Scouts formed one "0," with Junior and Cadette Scouts forming the other "0."

Last weekend, 42 Girl Scouts traveled to the nation's capital to celebrate the centennial with more than 250,000 Scouts from all 50 states.

Tuesday's event was a way for all Girl Scouts in Framingham to celebrate the milestone, said Petroni.
