LEGEND OF THE
The Chartreuse Buzzards made their appearance at the Innovative
Training Workshop at Edit Macy National Center in August of 1974.
First reaction was the disbelief but as the week progressed, the
Chartreuse Buzzard became very important. "Sitting on a dead tree
became a break from mind boggling training...then it became a symbol
of friendship. As the buzzard spread its wings, friendships formed,
smiles came to faces easier' laughter was heard along with "what A
shame" and "REjoice" [.] Someone from the mid-west suggested that
any time we meet again at regional, national or local events that
the "dead tree" be the sign of friendship. Since part of the Magic
of Macy is in returning to one's council and sharing what was
learned in the INTERNATIONAL ORDER OF CHARTREUSE BUZZARDS was formed.
International to represent all councils and the Canadian Girl Guides
present. The patch is being sold with the profit going the Macy
Alumni Fund, At both eastern and western regional conferences, the
bird was sighted. Innovative? Fun? That's Girl
Scouting. Tired of being green? Change to Chartreuse, but only for
a little while....it might be just the lift one's spirit
needs...it's easy to join...just sing along...and come under the
wing of the friendly bird of scouting...THE CHARTREUSE BUZZARD.
