Looking for a fun troop or family outing? Attend the Girl Scout Centennial exhibit at River Falls Public Library and complete some steps towards earning your Follow Me Girls history patch!

Celebrating 100 Years of Area Girl Scouting is a display of Girl Scout historical artifacts and memorabilia that covers the entire lower level of the library. It celebrates the first 100 years of Girl Scouts in the United States, with a focus on Girl Scouts in the area.

Library staff have all the information for the Follow Me Girls patch so girls can complete requirements while viewing the exhibit.

Check out library hours and information and attend the exhibit anytime from now through October 25. There is no admission fee for the gallery, which is generally open during regular library hours beginning at 10 a.m.

A number of local alumnae, including Centennial Honoree Mary-Alice Muraski, contributed items to the Girl Scout Centennial display. It was coordinated with strong support from River Valleys Heritage Committee members Bonna Scherer and Midge Andreas. An opening reception held on Sunday, September 30 was very well attended by Girl Scouts from the community.

If you have an interest in Girl Scout history, you won’t want to miss this fun, informative exhibit.

    This was a great event. My girls really enjoyed walking around and seeing the history of Girl Scouts. They loved looking at the uniforms.

    I’ve looked on the RV website for the requirements, but I can’t find them. It would be nice to know the requirements before driving from the Cities to River Falls. Can you please post them on the RV website?

    Here is the guide and requirements for completing the Follow Me Girls patch. Traditionally, troops and girls earn this with the use of a kit of historical supplies, but the library has all of those things on display. Girls use those resources to learn these key items about Girl Scouts and River Valleys history. The River Valleys Awards page has also been updated with this file.

    I went to see the display today with my Granddaughter. The display is really special
    and included so many wonderful historic aspects of Girl Scouting. Wonderful work by Bonna, Midge, and all the others. We saw many Girl Scouts and Brownies there working hard on the Follow Me badge. It was a fun thing to do with my granddaughter on an MEA release day.
