To serve with heart and soul and hands.

No task too lowly, no cause too lofty

At home and leisure, outdoors with nature,

On native soil and overseas

Whether the rank is star or senior miss

American Sign Language
Girl Guides and Girl Scouts
Juliette Gordon Low

Did Juliette Gordon Low speak American Sign language?

No, Juliette Gordon Low was not known to have ever used sign language.

Due to the fact that she was not completely deaf and that her hearing loss occurred later in life, Juliette probably did not learn sign language. In fact, there are stories about how she used her hearing loss to get people to do things she asked them to do. If they tried to tell her "no" she would just go on talking as if she had not heard them.

What is the relationship between Girl Scouts and gorp?

Gorp is Good Old Raisins and Peanuts, a form of trail mix.

Girl Scouts have used GORP to give a different meaning to the ingredients and in Girl Scout ceremonies. For example: adding M&M's to the Gorp mix shows that Girl Scouts come in all colors, shapes and sizes. Every Girl Scout is a sister to other Girl Scouts, no matter how she looks or how she sounds. A Friendship Circle is round, so add round Cheerios.

Gorp, or Trail Mix, is also used as a snack, especially when Girl Scouts are camping or hiking.
