Dear Girl Scout Family,   


It's a week for giving thanks. On behalf of the entire Girl Scout staff, may I extend a heartfelt thank you to...  


... every girl who makes the values of the Girl Scout Promise and Law a priority in her life;  


...  every family who invests in leadership programming through Girl Scouts;  


... every volunteer who welcomes, guides, and cares about each girl as her own.


Have a fantastic week, Girl Scouts!  


Leigh Ann Davis

Chief Executive Officer
