These little charms and pins make wonderful birthday and Christmas gifts! And don’t forget Leader Appreciation Day coming up in April! These are absolutely perfect for that certain volunteer in your life that is especially interested in Girl Scout history and traditions.

The committee pins and charms feature the “running girl” image which was introduced on the first camp postcards produced for Girl Scouts, used between the years of 1920 and 1925.

The pins cost $25 each and the charms are $20. They come in silver only and can be ordered by downloading, printing, and filling out this Pin/Charm Order Form. Or you can contact us and we’ll send you a PayPal invoice and you can pay online! Easy as that! All proceeds from the sales of our pins and charms go directly to the Archives Committee to help us continue to fund the preservation of Atlanta area Girl Scout memorabilia.


Girl Scouts Make History

One of the most prized possessions that many of our History and Archives Committee members have is the “Girl Scouts Make History” pin or charm. I am often asked, when wearing my charm on a necklace to Girl Scout events, where I got my charm. The second question is if they are still available. We are happy to say that they are.

The design of these charms and pins was created in 1989 by Shirley Barentine, one of our original History/Archives committee members. The sterling silver pin and charm measure 3/4 inch in diameter and is a great way to honor our Girl Scout heritage. Use this Pin/Charm Order Form to purchase wonderful gifts for the holidays or in time to wear for 2012. All the monies raised goes towards preserving and making accessible the history of the Girl Scouts of Greater Atlanta Council. You can make a difference!
