Did you know that April 22 is Girl Scout Leader and Volunteer Appreciation Day? Well... It is! This is the time of the year when Girl Scouts say "Thank You" to volunteers that give their time and share their skills through the Girl Scouting Movement. So, for all you do for Girl Scouting, we thank you!
This past weekend, GSNC held the annual Adult Recognitions Ceremony where we recognized volunteers who were nominated by their Girl Scouts or fellow volunteers for going above and beyond. Terri DellaVecchia was honored for 70 years of volunteer service and membership to Girl Scouts and Ethel Carlson was honored for 50 years of volunteer service to Girl Scouting. Girl Scouting would not exist without volunteerism and the conviction that ones leadership will positively impact the girls that are mentored and they in turn, will take action to make the world a better place. We are humbled by the passion of women like Terri and Ethel; both wives, mothers, grandmothers, and leaders that have helped Girl Scouts of Nassau County reach out to countless girls in our communities, to plan meetings, learn safety guidelines, work with parents, teach other leaders, encourage higher achievement in themselves and others; by being a Girl Scout.
So I am posing this question to each and every Girl Scout out there...
How are you going to recognize those Girl Scout Leaders and Girl Scout Volunteers who make your Girl Scouting experience amazing and possible?
