Girl Scout Headquarters

 

Hello,
This pin was available to people attending the centennial event in Savannah March 12, 2012.  
They said it was a one day only availability. We are lucky to get it.

Savannah, GA - the first HQ site

Two versions of this pin; top one says First National Girl Scout Headquarters, the second one omits the National. I don't know which one is older.

Laura L. Beall of GS Greater Iowa notes that she bought a pin in 2010 and hers doesn't say "National" so the top pin is likely older.
