On March 12th I posted a photo to celebrate the 100th Birthday of Girl Scouts. Today I dug out these old post cards. In August 1964 I mailed these post cards home from camp. I was away at Camp Little Notch, Fort Ann, NY, sleeping in tents, cooking over campfires, boating, making crafts and hiking. There was a room in a cabin where we could buy postcards, stamps and other trinkets. I bought these cards there and mailed them to my parents and my brothers. They have 4 cent stamps!
Looking at the card on the left, you can see I added dialog for the people & animals. On the back I wrote,
Friday we had a cookout. We had: coco, toss salad, shaggy dogs & spaggetti.
On this postcard, to my brother, I wrote,
I know you don't like Girl Scouts but you would like it here.
It is funny to see what my younger self wrote home.
Let's hope Girl Scouts & Boy Scouts continue to bring new experiences & happy memories for many more years!
