There will be food, fun and entertainment, including a DJ, dancers, bands and other performers. There will also be strong female leaders from our community to say a few inspirational words to the attendees. In honor of the Suffragettes, participants are encouraged to wear white, along with their Girl Scout vest/sash. All Girl Scouts will receive a Women’s Suffrage Centennial participation patch. Adults may purchase a patch for $2 in the shop after the event while supplies last!
