Former Girl Scout at Green Palm Inn Joins “Daisies for Daisy” Salute to Girl Scouts Founder “Daisy” Low

“Green Palm Inn is one of the smallest bed and breakfast inns in Savannah, Georgia. Yet, size doesn’t matter when it comes to the person-by-person Daisies for Daisy tribute to Savannah-born Girl Scouts founder,” states Innkeeper Diane McCray, a Girl Scouts alumni. In Savannah the daisy’s visual applause begins in March 2012.

The Daisies for Daisy campaign is a grassroots salute to Juliette Gordon ‘Daisy’ Low. The Girl Scouts’ organization is celebrating its 100th Anniversary in 2012.

Former Girl Scout is our Innkeeper
Innkeeper Diane McCray assures, “What an honor for me to do this! As a former Girl Scout, I don’t want to be left out of this momentous occasion to celebrate Girls Scouts 100th Anniversary in Savannah.  I’ll be busy attending to my inn’s guest, yet taking part in the “Daisy” tribute is so simple. No meetings. No sign up sheets. If anyone likes the idea of decorating with daisies or wearing daisies, one simply does something with daisies. For this historic inn I chose to buy and plant Gerbera and English daisies in our new porch baskets. It’s a thrill for me to feel personally a part of this big, happy celebration. I really like the simplicity of the daisy idea!”
The Juliette Gordon Low Birthplace has an iPhone app that points to 100th Anniversary activities. Green Palm Inn in downtown Savannah is geo spotted in the Daisies for Daisy portion of the iPhone app.
The biggest period of Girl Scouts 100th Anniversary festivities in Savannah will take place during the week of March 10, 2012. A free taster tour of three rooms of the Juliette Gordon Low Birthplace mansion is March 10 – 12, 2012, 10 am – 4 pm, Sunday March 11, 11 am- 4 pm. An historical display, which honors Mrs. Low, is located in City Hall.

Backstory. The Daisies idea came from marketing executive Sandy Traub, also a Savannah native. It is beingcommunicated by word of mouth and through Twitter — @DaisiesforDaisy. “Daisies for Daisy came out of frustration. Practically, what could any one person or business do to applaud one of Savannah’s greatest achievers and famous citizens?  Savannah is not the bright lights of New York City, and there are no big budgets to do a ticker-tape style campaign. So, this low key daisy tribute is more in tune with the economy and, actually, is the proper southern thing to do when one is entertaining guests. It fits!  Savannah is a town that is renown for always being dressed for company. The City of Savannah staffers, citizens and businesses are helping to entertain visitors everyday! I’m thrilled that the City of Savannah, and Park and Tree administrators chose to showcase Daisies for Daisy in front of City Hall, in several downtown city squares, and near the iconic Forsyth Fountain.”

Get away to Savannah (best enjoyed at historical inns) in 2012 to catch the wave of enthusiasm in the city where Girl Scouting began! Located in the Landmark Savannah Historic District, the Green Palm Inn (once two seamen cottages) offers a bed and breakfast near many Girl Scouts historical spots and activities.
