My sister and I early in the morning before the 1973 Memorial Day Parade in Holden, Massachusetts. She was about eight and I was about twelve years old. I was a Girl Scout until my junior year of high school when I earned the Gold Award (the equivalent of Eagle Scout for boys). I then joined an Explorer Troop (run by the Boy Scouts, this program is co-ed). As a student teacher in college I helped out with a Brownie troop run by my dorm.
