A 1954 March --
In 1954, the Belle Plaine Girl Scouts troop marched down Main Street as part of a parade celebrating the centennial of the borough of Belle Plaine. The local Girl Scouts had come a long way over the years. In 1940, the big adventure was a train trip to Blakeley. In 1986, the girls took a trip to Washington, D.C. and New York City.
