Plum Girl Scouts Honor Griffith Family, Celebrate 100 Years
Local scouts are honoring a family who drowned last year and collecting school supplies this weekend.
Plum Community Girl Scouts are preparing to give back this weekend.
From Friday to Sunday, Aug. 17 to 19, the local girls will be participating in the Girl Scouts Western Pennsylvania's convention to celebrate the 100th anniversary of Girl Scouting.
As part of the celebration, there will be a parade on Saturday at 10 a.m. in downtown Pittsburgh. The parade begins at 10 a.m. and will run along Boulevard of the Allies, beginning on Grant Street.
Plum Girl Scouts are asking spectators to bring school supplies, which will be collected during the parade. The collected items will be donated to the Salvation Army in memory of Kim, Brenna and Mikaela Griffith, who drowned during a flash flood on Washington Boulevard last August.
The Griffiths were Plum residents and members of the Scouting community.
The one-year anniversary of their death is Aug. 19, just one day after the Girl Scout convention.
