Girl Scouts of America. Glowing Embers Council (Galesburg, Mich.)



The Glowing Embers were a Girl Scout Troop that served the Allegan, Barry, Calhoun, and Kalamazoo Counties, and was divided into six districts. The Glowing Ember’s purpose was to “inspire each girl to develop her own values and sense of worth as an individual” and to “provide opportunities for girls to experience, to discover, and to share planned activities that meet their interests.” Around the 1960’s, their membership for the west Michigan area was at 9,000 members. The Troop would annually fundraise for their member’s camps and workshops with cookie sales and community outreach events.
