Celebrated the centennial anniversary year of the Girl Scouts of American with the Bartlett History Museum on Thursday, February 28, 2013! Everyone, especially current and former Girl Scouts and leaders, are invited to attend, "Daisy's Girls, Camping with Juliette Gordon Low," a portrayal adapted and performed by Betsey Means.
The program will take place at the museum located in Bartlett Village Hall, 228 S. Main Street, with the program beginning at 7:00 p.m. The doors will open at 6:30 with birthday cake being served. Guests can also tour the museum's current exhibition, "Snip, Snaps and Sentiments, A Scrapbook of Bartlett's Scouting Heritage." All scouts, who attend in uniform, will be eligible to enter a drawing to win a Girl Scout scrapbook kit that evening. Early Bartlett scouts and leaders will be recognized for their participation and dedication in laying the foundation of scouting in our community.
In March 1912, Juliette Gordon Low organized Girl Scouting by stating, "I've got something for the girls of Savannah, and all of America, and all the world, and we're going to start it tonight!" To join in the museum's evening's festivities, please call 630-837-088 to reserve your seat(s), which is required due to space limitations.
