ST. CLOUD - It's been a century since the Girl Scouts of America were founded, and the Stearns History Museum is recognizing this milestone with a new exhibit.

"Year of the Girl: Girl Scouts 100th Anniversary" features decades of uniforms, artifacts and photographs of scouts in action. The items are on loan, collected from the Girl Scouts of Minnesota and Wisconsin Lakes and Pines Council.

Sarah Warmka is an archivist for the Stearns History Museum, and is a member of the Board of Directors for the Girl Scouts. She says the exhibit celebrates how far scouts, and women in general, have come in the last 100 years.

While "Year of the Girl" opened today, (Monday) the museum will host its formal kick-off on Sunday, March 18th from 1:00 p.m to 3:00 p.m, complete with girl scout cookies.

Admission is $5.00 for adults, $2.50 for children. Stearns History Museum members get in for free, and scouts, past and present can check it out at half price.
