Hello leaders! Let's see who many read this article!!
Do you know what kind of uniform this is? It is an official Girl Scout Uniform. From what year and what program? If you are interested in Girl Scout history, teach your troop. If you would like to come to Archives we can give you a "Girl Scout History 101" session. It is not boring, believe me.
Also, do you have older girls who would like volunteer hours? We have things for them to do. Give me or Patsy a call, we can fill you in.
Girl Scout History...many leaders do not know and cannot teach their girls just where Girl Scouts came from. It is important to know where
