Unknown at the time of what would be the last official Senior Girl Scout Roundup got off to a bit of a rough start. Although the newspapers carried several photos of uniformed (and gloved!) Senior Girl Scouts heading to the Roundup - some Girl Scouts had more of an adventure just getting there; one train was shot at and a bus had brake trouble leading to injuries.

On the other hand - this lucky Senior Girl Scout troop unexpectedly met up with former President & Mrs. Eisenhower and got a great photo!

It takes a lot of community support to run a Roundup. This article (above) shares just some of the companies, both local and national/international, that donated materials and supplies.

Recipes were commonly printed in newspapers with picture of Senior Girl Scouts cooking or eating. Most of these recipes contained condensed soup - no surprise considering Campbell's Soup was a sponsor.

"Blazing a Trail in Friendship"

was the motto of the alternative

Senior Girl Scout Roundup

held in Verona, Italy for

GSUSA members who lived in Europe,

 the Near East and North Africa 

as well as other

Girl Scout/Guides of the area.

Approximately 117 members attended.

It was a 12 day event. 


 

 

Carol Weir sent this... I was so surprised to see the patch 
from Verona, Italy.  I have been trying to find out information on 
this event for years.  I was one of the girls in attendance.  I have
a very poor memory of my life, but this is one of the biggest ones
I do remember.  I lived in Heidelberg, Germany at the time, and 
have always thought this event was a Cadette/Senior Encampment, 
not unlike the Senior Round-Ups (but very different).  We had a 
group of 11 Cadettes, 1 Senior and 1 adult in our group.  I know 
that we were not the only Cadettes there because the next year when
France kicked the U.S. out a girl I had met there transferred into my
class in Heidelberg.  We were supported by the military, they put up
tents large enough for the whole troop to sleep in, with cots, they
cooked and served our meals Mess Hall style, but in a tent (even 
made us take a salt tablet every day because of the heat).
 
I would love to contact some else who was there, help me jog
memories.  I lost all of my Girl Scout items (except my first book)
when we moved.  The mental memories are all I have, and as I 
said they are poor.  I would also like to find one of those patches,
up until a couple of years ago, it was my best Girl Scout memory.
 
Someday I may tell you the adventure we had on our way to the
encampment, and the impact this group had on my life.  Right now
I would love you to share my name and address with the person who
shared the patch.  I was:
 
Carol Lynch (nickname at the time NUT)
