    Commemoration plans include:

-- A historical exhibit of Girl Scout artifacts;   

-- Community activities to paint the town “Girl Scout green”;

--Commemorative patches that can be earned by community members, and

--Special events and celebrations to be announced.

     If you have photos or collectibles to share, send an email to or go to to tell your story and post images.
