We are excited to say that we have a great opportunity coming soon that will help Brownie through Ambassador girls earn parts of the citizen badge.  Please take a second to look at the attached flyer regarding the council program “Our Journey to the Ballot Box.”     

The 19th Amendment, which granted women the right to vote, will be on display at the Clinton Presidential Library for only a few days in October. With this being an election year, and the 100th year of Girl Scouting, what better time to educate yourselves, your girls and your communities about the importance of voting, and the struggle that many women went through to make the right for women to vote a reality?    

An additional exciting part of this announcement is that we have an opportunity for Cadettes and up to help plan and carryout this girl-led event in conjunction with the Clinton Presidential Library and council staff.   

Save the Date: 

  • October 20th, 10am-2pm, Clinton Presidential Library, Little Rock, AR is the date of the actual program “Our Journey to the Ballot Box” that is open to Brownies-Ambassadors.  Please note that this is the same date as the Race for the Cure, but the race participants will be finished before the start time of the program, so please consider doing both if you already had the race on your calendar to do with family or your troops.    

Register by October 10, 2012!
