Girl Scouts At Norman Rockwell Museum
In 1977, Norman Rockwell was asked to create a dozen designs for medallions depicting the ideals of the Girl Scouts of the United States of America on the occasion of the organization’s 65th anniversary. Rockwell, a long-time supporter of Scouting, created engaging scenes illustrating such tenets of the Girl Scout Law as “respectful,” “resourceful,” “be prepared,” and “on my honor.”
On Saturday, September 22, Norman Rockwell Museum is celebrating the 100th anniversary of the Girl Scouts with a special centennial celebration to be held at the Museum.
