This Campfire Girls photo appears to be a father-daughter dinner. The film was processed in May 1964, which seems consistent with the daffodils on the tables. It seems like a good image for the day after Fathers' Day.
This comment doesn't have anything to do with Fathers' Day, but seeing the girl holding the pitcher, reminds me of my high school days. Girls did not have organized sports. Only boys. But we girls were so privileged to be allowed to serve at the Lettermens Awards Banquet. We had to wear a dark skirt and white blouse and act prim and proper while were served and waited on the boys.

My high school days of no girls sports was in the 1960's. Campfire Girls was formed around 1910, to give girls the same outdoor experience that boys had with Boy Scouts.

L.E. I am still looking for the answer to why girl athletics went away...my Mother played basketball for Odell High School back in her day....I think the only thing at HRHS was tennis when I was there.

Arlen, my mom also played basketball. Did the war have something to do with eliminating girls' sports?

Is that the community room at Riverside Church?

I went to at least one of those father daughter dinners. I think mine may have been at the Riverside, but not sure. I wonder now how my dad got talked into attending. I remember skits and a box lunch.

L.E. and Christie, did you attend Camp Yallani during your Camp Fire Girl days? The museum is trying to gather more information about Camp Yallani and hopes to have a reunion of campers once the museum opens.

I did one year. I don't remember a lot about it, though.

I was certain that the man in the foreground was my Uncle Kenny Merz, but I just received conformation from one of his sons Bob. My cousin Vicky is seated across the table from him.
