SEPIA SATURDAY- Girl Scouts
This room also had little wooden kitchen appliances which we played house with when we were younger. I love the arched windows in the background and that great mural. Little did I know I would grow up and move to the land of Western movies.
This must have been some kind of induction ceremony. I'm the short one in the very middle, right above the Girl Scout insignia. Doesn't our scout leader look sharp in her military inspired uniform?
We wore sashes across the front of our uniforms with our merit badges on them,(although I don't see them here). The only badge that sticks in my mind was called "Animal Husbandry". About 4 or 5 of us got it mostly by appearing on a television program that featured a vet who told us about taking care of animals. We all stood around his examining table in a very realistic set of a veterinary office. This was in the pretty early days of T.V. when you didn't have the huge choice of programs that we have now.
