The auto industry has had a great impact on our community. Long recognized as the historic heart of the American automotive industry, Detroit took on the nickname "Motor City." In the late 1800s, Flint was home to a booming carriage-making industry for horse-drawn buggies—which some say was the biggest in the entire world. Hence, Flint became known as "Vehicle City." Henry Ford pioneered the use of the assembly line in manufacturing automobiles and provided the model for mass production that other industries later adopted. Our area is so rich in automotive history, and provides careers for many residents; this patch was created to further your knowledge.
Patch programs provide Girl Scouts an opportunity to enjoy a variety of activities while earning a fun patch.
Most patch programs are available to Girl Scouts of all grade levels, and some will list different requirements to complete the patch, depending on grade level. Completing patch programs will help your troop along their Journey—and may satisfy requirements for certain badges.
