Girl Scouts in White Gloves

All three of these subjects look familiar, but I’m going to let you put names to faces. What I can’t figure out is what the guy is holding, what is being passed, and in which direction it’s going. I thought it looked a little like a bird, but it’s not.

Scouts Headed to New Orleans

Pam Burkhimer, Sally Bierbaum and Gail Tibbles pose for a photo. I say pose because they were supposed to be packing for their Senior Girl Scout trip to New Orleans and there’s no way three members of the Class of ’66 could get all their stuff in one suitcase.

The only thing that looks real is Gail Tibbles with a list and checking it thrice. The Otahki Girl Scout Council chartered two buses for the Big Easy trip in June 1966. Wouldn’t you know it, just about the time the city recovered from that, along comes Hurricane Katrina.
