Though the weather outside was frightful, Girl Scouts gathered at the Kleffner Ranch in Helena to celebrate 100 years of Girl Scouting, and kicked off GSMW’s 100th anniversary events. This first “Journey Through Girl Scouting” event took place November 19 and featured activities girls took part in nearly a century ago. From archery to branding to leather tooling to candle making, girls experienced first-hand the activities many Girl Scouts did nearly 100 years ago!
Celebrations continue through 2012 in Casper (Jan 28 – 29, focused on the years 1932 – 1951), Billings (March 30 – 31, featuring a 100 year birthday bash), Cody (April 21- 22, focused on the years 1952 – 1971), Missoula (July 13 – 15, focused on the years 1972 – 1991), and end in Cheyenne for a closing sing-along at the Wyoming State Capitol (dates TBA, focused on the years 1992 – 2012).
