Holland Museum to host Scouting events

HOLLAND, Mich. - Former Girl Scouts, Boy Scouts, and Campfire members are invited to a Scouting Alumni Open House at Holland Museum on Thursday, February 17, 2011, from 5:30pm to 7:30pm.
 
The free event is part of the Museum's current Wichers Gallery exhibition entitled "Be Prepared! Celebrating a Century of Scouting" that runs through March 19, 2011.  The exhibition was curated by the museum's archivist, Caz Jung, a scouting alumnus and active scouting mom. She hopes the open house will be a chance for former scouts to gather for fellowship, food, and to share fun memories and insights garnered from their time as scouts.
 
"I'm hoping people will bring their merit badges and whatever parts of their outfits they might still have," says Jung. "And, perhaps, still fit," she adds.
 
The event will be hosted by Jung and Al McGeehan, former mayor of Holland, Boy Scout alumnus, and the museum's current director of development.
 
The museum is also hosting a Scout Recruitment event on Saturday, February 26, from 12pm to 5pm. Representatives will be on-hand from Girl Scouts and Boy Scouts to answer questions and sign-up potential new scouts.
 
The Holland Museum is located at 31 W. 10th Street. For more information, call (616) 394-1362, or visit hollandmuseum.org.
