Were you a Girl Scout?
If yes, how many years?
How many generations of Girl Scouts are in your family?
How has the Girl Scout Movement impacted your life?

The Girl Scouts has impacted my life on multiple levels. Most importantly by creating memories that I will cherish for a life time. I will never forget my fellow troop members or the dedicated volunteers who helped make my scouting experience all that it could be. I will always remember the fun I had earning badges, selling cookies and attending camp. I still keep in touch with several of my fellow troop members nearly 30 years later. Once a Girl Scout Always a Girl Scout holds true.

What does being a Girl Scout volunteer mean to you?

Being a Girl Scout volunteer means so much to me. I love the rich history, mission and meaningful ways that the organization helps all girls to realize their potential. My work as an adult volunteer brings back wonderful memories from my youth and I am absolutely delighted that I have an opportunity to work with so many amazing children, parents and adult volunteers. I am especially grateful that Girl Scouts affords me the opportunity to spend more quality time with my daughter, Bonnie who is now a Daisy. I will never forget the first time she tried on her new uniform. She was so proud and could not wait for our first troop meeting. She loves to talk about all of the fun activities, earning badges, spending time with members of troop and refers to me as her mom/teacher. I can honestly say that I am very happy and feel so blessed to work with such a fine organization.

Do you have a favorite Girl Scout word or phrase?

Right is Right, even if no one else does it. Juliette Gordon Low

What's your favorite Girl Scout cookie?

Thin Mint is my favorite cookie. I actually make my own ice cream and my favorite recipe includes Thin Mints.
