Remembering and celebrating the deceased has been a significant part of life in Mesoamerica for thousands of year. Even with the drastic changes brought by the Spanish conquest, the indigenous people were able to retain this long held practice and combine it with Spanish aspects to create what is now known as Día de Muertos.

Girl Scouts will bring families and friends together to honor special women who have passed on - women who have made special contributions to our world, like our very own Juliette Gordon Low, founder of Girl Scouts of the USA.  In addition to alter displays, this event will feature music, dancing, a costume parade, and tons of family fun.  This event is open to the public so bring the family and join us for Dia de Muertos!
