When I was a little girl in elementary school, I was a member of the Blue Birds. They are affiliated with the Camp Fire Girls. I do not remember anything beyond being given a little blue bird pin and being in the school lunchroom for the meetings. The lady that was over our group was also the lady that took me home from school as my mama didn't have a driver's license at the time. Visit this site to learn a bit about the Blue Birds. I had the second color pin, light blue, shown on the site.
When I was in the eleventh grade, I joined something called Junior Achievement. It was geared toward developing interest in starting one's own business. We made things to sell. I was terrified of the drill press, but that was one of the things that we used to created food trays. Click here to learn more about Junior Achievement.
I didn't finish out the school year in the JA program as it conflicted with my most favorite show's airing night. I was hopelessly addicted to the weekly Monday night tears caused by Little House on the Prairie. Our JA meetings were on Monday nights and I ultimately gave up the program so that I could watch Little House on the Prairie.
I am not a member of any clubs or organizations at this time. However, I would dearly love to be able to join the United Daughters of the Confederacy and the Daughters of the American Revolution. I have always loved history and to be able to link my own family history to the history of this country means a great deal to me. I believe that I could learn a great deal being a part of these organizations and it would give me the opportunity to do my part to preserve the heritage of our patriot families.
