Shawnee Council Treasures

I took a snowy drive to Winchester, VA, on January 31 to meet with the curators of the GSCNC Shenandoah Region archives.

Sandy Jones and Patsy Campbell have items on display in two rooms of the Youth Development Center off Battaile Drive.

They have uniforms, pins, patches, photos, mugs, and many other items that any Girl Scout will recognize, along with artifacts unique to Shawnee Council, which merged with GSCNC in 2009.  The collection also covers Camp White Rock and the councils that merged to create Shawnee in 1963: Blue Ridge (Virginia), Eastern Panhandle (eastern West Virginia), Washington County (Maryland), and Shawnee (Allegany and Garrett Counties, MD, and Bedford County, PA).

Troops wanting to learn more about Girl Scout history, perhaps for their Girl Scout Ways badges, should consider a visit.  Contact Sandy at nokemis@verizon.net to schedule a tour.
