 Mystery item #3 is a pin that was made for the Spanish Trails Girl Scout Council (which eventually merged into the Girl Scouts - Greater Los Angeles Council) as a souvenir for people who attended the council's annual recognition dinner.  Each year a different pin was made, and I don't remember exactly what year this particular pin is from -- but I was there, since I have one in our collection.  Most probably from the mid-1990's.

note the trefoil and BSA logos at the top of this sorority pin.

Finally solved - this Greek Key has been on the mystery list for years!

Founded in1934, a sorority called Alpha Pi Delta that was (at first) exclusively for those who had earned the Golden Eaglet. Later it was amended to add First Class Girl Scouts who were now in college.

The current Alpha Pi Deltas are not associated with Girl Scouting.

This is professional embroidery on black felt. Looks like Girl Scout/Girl Guides, but can't identify it.

G.S. Wayfarers pin - is it Girl Scout related?

SOLVED

Hello, I am Sarah Edwards, currently Chief of an Alumnae Service organization based in Birmingham, Alabama known as Wayfarers. The number 12 item on your mystery Girl Scout and Girl Guide list is our membership pin. Our group was organized in 1947 as a group of out-of-doors trainers who would teach campfire cooking in a city park in our area one evening a month. The three leaves are of the sassafras tree which is the only tree (that we know of) which has three distinct leaves. We have been having these membership pins made for our group since the 50"s.
