Heart of the South unveiled a stunning piece of artwork in November 2012 in celebration of donations made to the 100th Anniversary campaign. Pat Moody, lifetime Girl Scout and former Girl Scouts Heart of the South Board Member, sculpted the piece and dubbed it the “100th Anniversary Tree.”
The tree is sculpted out of steel and features gold plaques for all of the donors to the campaign. There are removable leaves throughout the design to allow for more donor recognition as the campaign continues.
Moody says of the thought behind her design, "What better representation than a tree? Girl Scouting started from a seed, planted by Juliette Low in 1912, and it has grown and grown and grown. The tree is made out of steel, which speaks to the strength of our movement and of our girls. And finally, there isn't one leaf on the tree that is the same as another. They are all unique, just as all Girl Scouts are, from a Daisy to one of us old folks."
Moody said she was honored to be a part of the commemoration of the Girl Scouts 100th anniversary celebrations.
If you would like to donate to the campaign, contact Kimberly Crafton, Director of Fund Development for Girl Scouts Heart of the South at 901-767-1440 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
