Where did the year go? It is almost May, and you are too busy for words. There's graduation, end of the year picnics, thinking about what to do with the kids for the summer? Its spring and the lawn is calling, but who has time for that with sports back in action, consuming your Saturday morning. Then there's the Girl Scout trip with the cookie funds to be planned, coordinated and taken. Oops, camporee, too; where will it all fit in? There are too many things to do and not enough hours in the day.
Last week was National Volunteer Appreciation Week, and I want you to know that we value you, our volunteers. We value who you are, that you take the time from your busy world to work with Girl Scouts. We value your time, which is precious and insufficient most days. We value how you teach girls to become contributing citizens in your community and your world. We value that you share what you have to offer to girls so they too can become leaders. You shape our future with your gifts.
We want to take just a minute in this really hectic time of year to thank you for who you are and what you do. Thank you.
