I was a Brownie and a Girl Scout growing up. I loved Scouting and am happy that Charlie is involved in Scouts as well. Back when I was in Girl Scouts we wore our uniform to school on our meeting days. I had the complete uniform including the knee socks even as a Girl Scout. I kept my GS sash along with other bits and pieces of my uniform.
I have fond memories of Girl Scouting although things have changed quite a bit since then. Even sit-upons are different! One thing hasn’t changed is selling Girl Scout cookies. I love Thin Mints and buy quite a few boxes each year, storing them in the freezer for later on.
In fact, my sister and I were in the Girard Ohio newspaper promoting Girl Scout cookie sales back in 1978. If I remember correctly we were in the top sales the previous year which is why we were chosen for that year’s advertising.
