Santa Monica History Museum, Santa Monica Public Library, and Girl Scouts of Greater Los Angeles Present Free Discover the History Lecture Featuring the History of Girl Scouts

The Santa Monica History Museum, the Santa Monica Public Library, and the Girl Scouts of

Greater Los Angeles will host a free Discover the History lecture on Wednesday, March 22, 2017 at 6:30 PM in the Santa

Monica Public Library’s Martin Luther King, Jr. Auditorium. This lecture will focus on the history of Girl Scouts and will also

be a celebration of Women’s History Month. Dr. Lisette Gold, a Santa Monica Girl Scouts Service Unit Manager and

Ambassador Troop #8355 Leader, will be the speaker for this free community event.

Girl Scouts are a ubiquitous part of American life, but where did they get their start and how did they grow to one of the

nation’s premier women’s organizations with nearly three million active and over fifty-nine million alumnae members? Dr.

Lisette Gold will share the history of Girl Scouts, who celebrate 105 years of empowering women this March, a fitting way

to celebrate Women’s History Month 2017! The talk will also include information about local scouting and its impact on

the community.

The lecture is offered free to the public, but seating is limited and RSVPs are encouraged. To RSVP or for more information

please contact Kathryn Evans at (310) 395-2290 or kevans@santamonicahistory.org.

This program is free and open to all ages. Seating is limited and on a first arrival basis. The Santa Monica Public Library is

wheelchair accessible. For special disabled services, call Library Administration at (310) 458-8606 at least one week prior

to event. The Main Library is served by Big Blue Bus routes 1, 7, R7, R10 and 18. Ride your bike. Bicycle parking racks are
