Girl Scout Dances

Girl Scout Dance, ca. 1952

Girl Scout dances were usually held twice a year, one always for Valentine's Day. We would fuss and fret over whom to ask and hoped they would/could dance. Boys were more shy, as a rule at that age, but caught up in a hurry. We girls decorated and baked cookies and lined up parents willing to chaperone. Girls would whisper and giggle and the boys acted goofy. The experience of playing hostess, acting like ladies and using our manners would be skills we would use all our lives.
