Georgia Archives Month 2011

Georgia History--Worth Saving!

It’s that time again! If you missed it last year, it’s not too late! October is Georgia Archives Month, where we celebrate archives and history throughout Georgia. Last month and this month have been busy at the Girl Scouts of Greater Atlanta Archives, as requests have been coming in for information on Council history and loans of material for programs and exhibits. Everyone is gearing up for the 100th anniversary of Girl Scouting! We are so excited!

What sort of questions are you asking at troop meetings or service unit meetings? We would love to start compiling a FAQ of Council and Girl Scout history that you could share with your scouts and parents. Please send in your questions to helpline@gsgatl.org. We will create a new page on our blog devoted to helping you discover more about our Council and Girl Scout history in general that you will be able to access 24/7 (or at least when your Internet connection is working).

Come in to the HQ in Mableton, Georgia, and view our exhibits on the way to the Badge & Sash store, in the main training room, or while you visit the Resource Room. We have handbooks, uniforms, dolls, quilts, and camping exhibits that illustrate our rich history.
