Girl Scouts across America are celebrating the organization’s 100th anniversary this year, and La Cañada Flintridge’s Lanterman House is getting in on the festivities.
The museum will be opening an exhibition on the history of the Girl Scouts on Feb.5 and hosting a birthday party for scouting on March 18.
Christie Crahan, a member of the Girl Scouts Greater Los Angeles Council’s Heritage Committee, said the abiding theme of the exhibition and events is the connection between the organization’s past and present.
“The whole exhibit is going to explore how Girl Scouts has evolved and changed, and what it did for the 21st-century woman,” she said.
Crahan said the Heritage Committee pulled from its own collection, as well as from private collections of Girl Scout memorabilia, to put together a group of photographs, videos, uniforms, books and dolls that explains the organization’s growth over the past 100 years — including some wardrobe changes.
