(Neb.) - Final week for Girl Scouts exhibit at NPVM
GERING, NEB.—Apr. 23, 2012—The exhibit honoring the 100th birthday of the Girl Scouts of America is in its final week at the North Platte Valley Museum. To allow visitors one last opportunity to see the displays, NPVM will open from 1 to 3 p.m. on April 28. The last day to view the exhibit will be April 30 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
The Girl Scout exhibit includes displays depicting the history, evolution and highlights of the 100 years of Girl Scouts using memorabilia such as uniforms, badges, sashes, books, posters and pins. A hands-on display of flags and a telegraph can be used to explore what it would have taken to earn a “telegrapher” or “signaler” badge in the 1920s. There is also an opportunity for Girl Scouts – past and present – to place their name on a candle and add it to a birthday cake display.
NPVM is located at J and 11th Streets in Gering and is currently open Monday through Friday 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. For more information contact Executive Director Katie Bradshaw at 308-436-5411.
