Our staff has been out at council programs, service unit programs, camporees and girl events lately. As we attend these events, we are always stunned and amazed at what our volunteers can do. In more than one case, we saw the same volunteers with a different troop one weekend after the next. They were sharing their insights, gifts and patience.
In a different situation, a staff member was working with a leader to plan a camporee for her service unit. It is unbelievable the amount of time and work that goes into such an endeavor, but what fun the girls will have. It was such a pleasure to hear the girls discussing what the events of the camporee will be and how to make it a special weekend for their friends. Girls learning to share their gifts with other girls, as they are shaping the leaders to come, is truly a special thing.
As Girl Scouts of Southern Alabama looks toward the upcoming 100th anniversary of Girl Scouting, we ask that all Girl Scouts, past and present, join in the celebration. If you were once involved with Girl Scouts or would like to learn more about this extraordinary organization, now is a great time to reconnect! Just send us a note at firstname.lastname@example.org.
On this National Girl Scout Leader Day, and everyday, the staff would like to thank you for all you do to shape the future leaders you work with. We appreciate all the frustration, heartache, effort, time and resources you give to make our world a better place. Our work would not be possible without you!
