Performance of Juliette Low at Loomis Lakeside at Reeds Landing

On Friday, May 24, at 7:00 pm, actress and storyteller Kate Carney presented a one-woman performance entitled, “Juliette Low, Founder of Girl Scouts” at Loomis Lakeside at Reeds Landing, 807 Wilbraham Road, Springfield, MA.  The performance was both free and open to the public.   

Free-spirited Juliette (Daisy) Low shared how she lived life to the fullest, from Civil War Savannah to World War I London.   Kate Carney, as the irrepressible Mrs. Low, revealed how she grew from a rebel tomboy into a true Southern lady.  She married into English society, traveled, entertained and made friends with everyone – titled heads of Europe, Rudyard – Kipling – and every dog, cat, horse, parrot, and cow she ever met.  Daisy found Scouting – and her life’s true purpose.  In challenging girls to explore and find their talents, she uncovered her own.  

This program was supported in part by a grant from the Springfield Cultural Council, a local agency that is supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency.
