Dear Girl Scout Family,
As Court of Awards season begins and the Girl Scout meeting year draws to a close, let me be the first to say THANK YOU to everyone who works "behind the scenes" to make Girl Scouting possible. From parents who said "yes" when their girl said "can I..."; to adult volunteers who said "yes" to sharing their time and talents; to the generous businesses and organizations who said "yes" to opening their doors for meetings and tours; and the friends and family who said "yes" to cheering the girl on. For every membership star that's given, every badge that's earned, and every "aha" moment a girl experiences, there's a network of support. You are making a huge difference in the life of a girl ... and, your efforts are making your community (and ultimately the whole world) a better place.
Thank you for saying "yes"!
p.s. Help the fun continue by saying "yes" to being involved in Girl Scouting next year! Participate in our Jump Start campaign! Get the best deal when you re-register now.
