While area 4-H participants are gearing up for the 2014 Moffat County Fair in August, other school and independent organizations are winding down with the approach of the summer vacation.

Youths involved in these extracurricular groups often remember them as highlights of growing up. Additionally, the skills often learned in these clubs enrich them for a lifetime.

The Museum of Northwest Colorado has a photograph, shown here, that was taken in the early 1990s, but the location and the identification of the girls and leaders is unknown. Some of these grinning girls are wearing T-shirts sporting the logo “Brownies Count,” which tells us this was a “Brownie” event. If anyone recognizes this event or any of the people in the photo, the museum staff would appreciate getting the information.

The museum appreciates all the images that so many people have shared with us in the past. We are always happy to scan the original photographs and then return the originals to you. We always give credit to the photographer, when known, and to the donor whenever we use that image.

If you have any photographs that you feel might be useful to documenting our history, please call the museum at 970-824-6360. Also, if you have any information about the photo shown here, please let the museum know.
