Kentucky Historical Society
KHS to Host Girl Scout Workshop May 21
FRANKFORT, Ky. (May 4, 2011) – The Kentucky Historical Society (KHS) will host a workshop for Girl Scout Juniors from 9 a.m. to noon on Saturday, May 21 at the Thomas D. Clark Center for Kentucky History in downtown Frankfort.
The Local Lore workshop invites Girl Scout Juniors to discover Kentucky’s capital city and learn how Frankfort became the city it is today by exploring maps and photographs from the KHS collection.
This is the ninth Girl Scout workshop KHS has hosted, with more to come in the fall of 2011. KHS has partnered this year with both Girl Scouts of the Wilderness Road Council and Girl Scouts of Kentuckiana.
“Our workshops give Girl Scouts the opportunity to explore the KHS history campus and new ideas and time periods,” said Erica Harvey, KHS coordinator of children and family programs. “Then the girls can participate in hands-on activities to reinforce what they’ve learned and have fun in the process. The workshops are a fun way for the girls to bond with their troops and meet other Girl Scouts.”
May’s workshop is open to all Girl Scout Juniors. Registration fee includes craft supplies, snack, a Girl Scout Try-It Badge, a KHS Badge and admission to the KHS history campus. Register by May 17 by contacting the Girl Scouts of the Wilderness Road at email@example.com or 859-293-2621.
