Girl Scout Conventions in Review

Reminders of the earliest Girl Scout conventions have left behind little more than printed programs and delegate buttons with tattered ribbons attached.

Later Girl Scout conventions brought forth more mementos of the event beyond postcards and pins.

All are fun to hunt for and find.
