TARRYTOWN, N.Y. The Girl Scouts of the Tarrytowns are planning to dig through history Saturday.
To mark the 100th anniversary of the national Girls Scouts program, local troop members will be unearthing a time capsule in Patriot's Park that was buried 25 years ago. Scouts also will be burying a new time capsule for future troops.
The current troops have pulled together items for a new time capsule to take the place of the old one, Girl Scout Leader and Council Volunteer Pat Evans said. There will be a reception on the third floor of the Warner Library, with displays from current troops and some memorabilia as well, following the ceremony in the park.
The national Girl Scouts program began 100 years ago in Savannah, Ga. by Juliette Gordon.
Evans notes the Girl Scouts planted their time capsule and a tree on the right side of the main entrance to the park. Saturday's ceremony will take place just inside the main entrance at 1 p.m.
Evans said it would include songs, as well as flag and candle ceremonies.
We are hoping for several alumna leaders and girls from the old Tarrytown troops, Evans said.
