Thank you, volunteers!


liz_brent.jpgI recently was invited to attend a Bronze Award Ceremony.   Always a welcome invitation in my world, as I enjoy having an opportunity to see what girls can do.   It was a great evening. The girls had done three different projects, demonstrating their troop leader was clearly sensitive of affording girls the opportunity to chase their own passions.     Each of the projects were about giving back to the community and being grateful for what they had.   It was great to see the mayor and other dignitaries from their community were there. The most poignant part of the event, however, was not the slide show, not each one acknowledging their accolades, but each of the girls thanking their troop leader and giving her a gift.   I'm sure she was surprised, but each thanked her for what she had given to them.   This is the type of gift to these girls that is never forgotten.   The gift cards are transitory, but giving your time and caring to others is permanent.   Thank you to all our volunteers for sharing their wealth with the girls of this council.
