Happy 100th Birthday to the Girl Scouts!
There have been three generations of Girl Scouts in our family: my mother, myself & my daughters. My mother was a Girl Scout in the Bronx. When I was little I was very shy & she hooked me up with the Scouts to help me make friends. I have many happy memories of Girl Scout activities: crafts, badges, cooking, camping & making new friends. When I first sold Girl Scout cookies a box of cookies was 25 cents.

Membership in Girl & Boy Scouts, 4H & other clubs is great information for genealogies.
I'm going to have to slap together a quick post. I loved being in Brownies and Girl Scouts. I was a leader too for my daughter's troop.ReplyDelete
Wendy, My mother, my aunt and I were both Girl Scout leaders. I was also a camp counselor as a teenager. We went spent many hours with Scouts: meetings, trips, badge days, award ceremonies, camp outs. We gave a lot but got many happy memories in return.ReplyDelete
Such a great snapshot. And now you've got me wondering whatever happened to my membership card. Sadly long gone.ReplyDelete
