This month's Community Case features a plethora of fun and fascinating items from the Girl Scouts. The case, which debuts on Arts Alive on March 3rd, was created and installed by Elaine Reed. Elaine decided to show the collection of Girl Scout uniforms, handbooks, and memorabilia in celebration of Girl Scout Day, which takes place on March 12. The Girl Scouts of America were founded on March 12, 1912 in Savannah, Georgia by Juliette Gordon Low. In celebration of the Girl Scout Birthday, all Girl Scouts can visit the museum for free during the month of March!
The case includes a variety of historical uniforms, along with information on when each uniform was used and changed over time. It also includes a variety of interesting related items, such as cameras, commemorative tins, calendars and signs.
This case doesn't just look sweet-on its debut this Saturday, there will be Girl Scouts from a local Eureka troop selling cookies at the Museum, so stop by and get your box before they're gone.!
