Girl Scouts Heart of Mid-Michigan looking for a few good women

 For 99 years, Girl Scouting has been preparing girls for greatness. Girl Scouts are now searching for all women who were Girl Scouts during the last 99 years.  We are developing a comprehensive list for the archives and to list and highlight during the 100th anniversary celebration.

Were you a Girl Scout? Brownie Girl Scout, Junior Girl Scout, or higher?  Did you earn the highest honor bestowed on Girl Scouts of the past and present? Were you a Curved Bar, First Class or Gold Award Girl Scout? Call Girl Scouts Heart of Michigan at 1-800-49-SCOUT or email alumnae@ghsom.org and tell us your own Girl Scout story.   If you (or your mother, aunt or grandmother )received this highest award as a girl in Girl Scouting, get it touch with GSHOM as we kick off our two-year celebration of the centennial of Girl Scouting (March 12, 2011 to March 12, 2013).

Current Girl Scouts the Lansing Region of GSHOM now have the chance to become Alumnae Sleuths, interviewing former Girl Scouts in their communities.  Girls will learn what life was like for Girl Scouts in each decade of the last century and how the values of Girl Scouting have endured over the years.  A special patch program, called Windows On the Past, will debut on March 12, 2011. Each month, girls will replicate activities that Girl Scouts did during one of the ten decades of Girl Scouting, from 1912 to the present.

Windows On the Past and all of the exciting programs of Girl Scouting’s centennial will roll out on Saturday, March 12, 2011, at the GSHOM Lansing Regional Center, 1223 Turner Street in Old Town. For more information on joining Girl Scouts during this historic year, contact the Lansing Regional Center at 1-800-49-SCOUT.
