Ever wonder about the sign on I-25 northbound between Briargate Parkway and Interquest? Well, wonder no more! Here's the story:
Between 1956 and 1965, Girl Scouts of the USA (GSUSA) held international Girl Scout Senior Roundups every 3 years. Colorado Springs hosted the 2nd Roundup, held 3 - 12 July 1959, which was attended by about 10,000 people (approximately 8,000 girls and 2,000 adults) from 28 countries. This Roundup had two themes: "New Frontiers" and "A Mile High, A World Wide". The 1968 and future international Roundups were cancelled in favor of more regional gatherings.
Senior Roundups were the highlight of a girl's Girl Scouting years. Remember that during this timeframe, Seniors were the highest level of Girl Scouts (there were only 3 levels in 1959: Brownies, Intermediates, and Seniors. Intermediates were split into Juniors and Cadettes in 1963. Though Brownie membership was extended to 6 year olds in 1973, Daisy's didn't exist until 1984)
