Camp Fairchild

Posted by PicasaThis is a picture taken at Brownie camp, northwest of Hutchinson. Back in the '30's, this was way out in the country by Cow Creek. Now the land is found just northwest of 17th and Hendricks and occupied by many houses.
These girls must have been between 7 and 10 years old - the ages for Brownies before they "flew up" to be Girl Scouts.
My mom is in the nurse uniform and her co-leader is a dear friend, Cecile, on the left.
I'm the one standing third from the right, holding up a small walnut or hedgeball or something round.
Marcheta is next to me and Dana, Cecile's daughter is on the end of the row.
