Girl Scout Symbolism Tour

On Saturday, October 12, Thomaston-Upson Archives Director Penny Cliff took Girl Scout Troop 123, leaders Cindy and Rebecca Friar, and some of the girls’ family members to the City of Thomaston’s oldest cemetery: Glenwood.  The group learned about cemetery etiquette, Victorian era  symbolism; they found the symbolism in specially designed coloring books; searched for  headstones with symbolism and learned the correct way to make headstone rubbings.  Everyone took home a sheet with their rubbing, a Glenwood symbolism coloring book and crayons, and a Glenwood symbolism brochure.  The girls from Troop 123 will earn a  “Celebrating Community” badge for participating in this tour.
