April 2013 Edition
As always in Girl Scouting, we had a busy and eventful couple of months celebrating the end of the 100th year and the beginning of our 101st year in Girl Scouting. We have Girl Scouts doing community service projects and taking action to make their communities a better place. But, as Girl Scouts, we have to remember that we would not be able to do all we do without the help of our Girl Scout Leaders and Volunteers.
Everyone likes to feel appreciated for her or his volunteer service. Whether in the form of a simple “Thank you” for a job well done or a formal commendation for years of faithful service in a key position, when volunteers know their time and energy are appreciated and that they are valued by Girl Scouts, they commit themselves to the organization. It is an important time for girls, parents, and staff of GSNC to reach out to Girl Scout Volunteers and say THANK YOU FOR ALL THAT YOU DO!
Thank you to a fabulous group of volunteers, who with staff support, helped host the 100th Anniversary Gala in March. Sandy couldn’t stop us! The 100 Anniversary Gala may have been delayed but it was a rousing success that celebrated all that is great about Girl Scouts.
Our amazing volunteers are empowering our Girl Scouts, encouraging them to work towards their Gold, Silver, and Bronze Awards. Emma, a Girl Scout Cadette from ELLM tells us her story of how she worked towards earning her Girl Scout Silver Award; educating our community on how to prepare for a natural disaster and helping kids and families all over Long Island.
