The end of the school year has again rolled around very quickly. It is amazing how time flies by in the blink of an eye, and it is simply amazing.
This time of year, we receive many invitations to end of the year events and activities, which are always so much fun to attend. It is clear that you do so much for our girls, and I want to take some time to say thank you to those of you who make this endeavor possible. Recently, I have been privileged to be in the presence of some tremendous volunteers. I have witnessed great recognitions for the girls; girls who have learned to speak in public, finding their own voice, and accomplishing great things. We have seen girls making wonderful end-of-the-year mementos that will have meaning and value for them.
We have seen girls walking across bridges, moving into a different part of their journey, and exploring new paths. We have had the opportunity to celebrate all the girls who have earned their Bronze, Silver, and Gold awards. But we also have seen hundreds of girls earning all sorts of badges.
None of this would be possible without the time, devotion, and commitment of you as a volunteer. Someone, like you, who is willing to step up, takes the time from your schedule, and serves as a leader. We recognize your time is valuable and something that you can't get back. But as we watch the many wonderful events and activities you plan, coordinate, and invest yourself it, it becomes clear that you are investing in the growth of the girls you work with, you make your own community a better place, and change the world.
Thank you for being a volunteer and a wonderful person.
