The GSCO History Committee has a display at the Loveland Public Library during the month of February. The display highlights 100 years of Highest Awards in Girl Scouts. The Girl Scout Gold Award began in 1980, but Girl Scouts have been earning a highest award since 1916. This award has been called the Golden Eagle of Merit, Golden Eaglet, First Class, and Curved Bar. Posters showing information about these awards, along with Girl Scout handbooks and badge books through the years, are joined by some vintage uniforms and badge sashes showing earned badges. In addition to highlighting Highest Awards, there is a section advertising cookie sales.
The GSCO history committee hopes that if you are in the Loveland area during the month of February, you will stop by the library and see the display. The Loveland Library is located at 300 N. Adams Ave, Loveland, CO 80537 and is open daily from 9:00 a.m. – 8:00 p.m.
For more information on the GSCO History Center in Loveland email firstname.lastname@example.org. We welcome troop visits as well as community visitors. The committee works on Tuesdays from 9 a.m.-noon.
