Create display boards or cabinet displays.
Donate photo scrapbooks or help to preserve magazines and catalogs by putting them in sleeves.
Girl Scout Alumni Interviews
Contact women from your community who were Girl Scouts in 1930 - 2008. Interview them about their Girl Scout activities and create a story page to preserve the Girl Scout Alumni's Girl Scout stories. (Remember to have the Alumni sign a release to use their picture and personal information in promotional and historical publications before you begin the interview.) Include her name and address, pictures, number of years in Girl Scouts, activities that she participated in, types of awards she may have won, positions she may have held as an adult Girl Scout, if she has daughters or granddaughter in Girl Scouts, and any other interesting stories about her Girl Scout experiences. Put your story on the front and back of an 8 1/2" by 11" acid-free paper, decorate with acid-free supplies, and sleeve your page in a 3-hole sheave for inclusion in a scrapbook with other Alumni stories.
Preserve Your Part in History!
Make a scrapbook page about your own Girl Scout Troop to include in the museum. Include pictures that explain what your troop enjoys most about Girl Scouts. Tell who the girls and adults are in the troop, and include statements or short stories about what Girl Scouts means to you today. Use the front and back of an 8 1/2" by 11" piece of acid-free paper, decorate with acid-free supplies, and sleeve yoru page in a 3-hole sheave. Make your troop part of the history preserved in the Post Rock Scout Museum!
