Area women and businesses are invited to support the event by hosting a table for eight guests. Luncheon tickets are $20 per person.

The keynote speaker will be Linsey Ness of Blackduck, a teacher and past Girl Scout Gold Award and National Young Woman of Distinction recipient.

Guests also will be entertained by Wadena actor Mary Harrison's portrayal Juliette Gordon Low, a "live exhibit" of girls dressed in historical Girl Scout uniforms past and present, and the musical talents of the high school Girl Scout Troop 572.
