Girl Scouts of Montana and Wyoming’s first 100th Anniversary celebratory event is taking place in just a few weeks in Helena. For girls attending, a special participation patch–created by a Girl Scout–is available.

Girls attending any 100th anniversary event will receive a participation patch and matching candle. Collect all six candles for a complete set!

Events continue throughout 2012 in:

  • Casper featuring activities from 1932 – 1951 (date TBD)
  • Billings will celebrate a century of Girl Scouting during the 2012 Annual Meeting (March 30 – 31)
  • Cody featuring activities from 1952 – 1971 (April 21 – 22)
  • Missoula featuring activities from 1972 – 1991 (July 13 – 15)
  • Cheyenne featuring a sing-a-long at the State Capitol and activities from 1992 – 2012 (dates TBD)

The Participation Cake Patch and location-specific candle is available to each registered girl attendee to any of the 100 Year events. Adults have the option of purchasing the patch and candle for $2.00. Additional candles are $.75/each.

    Anything happening in the Bozeman area?
    We are in West Yellowstone, and would love to be able to attend some birthday events with other Girl Scouts.

    Hi Lisa! We are working on events throughout the council, and the best place for updates is at http://gsmw.org/100th-anniversary/events, where we will post events as they are announced.

    In Billings we will host a large celebration for girls and adults. Hope you can attend!
