Historic Hood River
Girl Scout Cookies?
I’ll go way out on a limb and say this is a picture taken by Carroll Day, Alva and Io Day’s son, of his daughter Kathy selling Girl Scout Cookies. It’s not Hood River, but it’s a fun picture which I hope encourages some stories about selling cookies door-to-door.
Isn't that a Campfire Girls insignia?
It is the Bluebirds insignia. Bluebirds were the organization for the youngest members of Camp Fire Girls of America. The Camp Fire logo is on the candy (not cookies) boxes she is holding.
Thanks for the memories. I can remember selling the mint candies.
I wrote Campfire last week to see if they still do their club program and they don't offer it in Oregon anymore. They are mostly focused on after school childcare and summer camp.
Wasn't our local (years ago) Camp Yallani associated with Campfire girls. I think so but maybe not?
James, I was thinking there were some photos of Campfire Girls at a lake but they weren't in these photos:

Camp Yallani was a Camp Fire Girls camp located at the west end of the dike at Kingsley Reservoir where some of the photos L.E. references were taken. The museum has recently had an inquiry about Camp Yallani so would appreciate hearing comments/memories from any who attended. The camp was built in the early 1940's and continued as a Camp Fire camp at least through the 1960's–maybe later. Only the rock chimney of the lodge fireplace remains today.

I was on the staff one summer and had my first child with me who was born in 1972, so that must have been 1973.
