The Lyceum Hosts “Try-It” Program on March 17
During Women’s History Month, Girl Scout Brownies can celebrate women and learn about issues important to women and girls in their community, at “Her Story: Women in Action” at The Lyceum, Alexandria’s History Museum, on Saturday, March 17. A panel of former Girl Scouts will share their memories of Girl Scouting and how scouting empowered them. Participants will learn about Juliette Gordon Low, the founder of American Girl Scouting, by looking at a timeline of her life. Girls and adults will add their own future goals to the timeline. This program fulfills the requirements for the Her Story “Try-It” for Girl Scout Brownies.
Alexandria’s Department of Community and Human Services will sponsor two activity stations to help Brownies learn about important women’s issues. At the “Healthy Relationships” station, participants will create a Peace Tree. The positive words participants write on lip and hand cutouts symbolize their commitment not to say hurtful things or to use hands to hurt others. Girl and adult participants will decorate pink ribbon cutouts at the station where they learn about Alexandria’s Walk for Breast Cancer.
Two sessions are available, the first from 1:30 p.m. to 2:40 p.m. and the second from 3 p.m. to 4:10 p.m. Advance registration is required and can be done online at www.alexandriahistory.org or by calling 703.746.4994. Fees are $6 per person.
The Lyceum is located at 201 South Washington Street in Old Town Alexandria and is open Monday through Saturday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and on Sundays, 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.
