On Wednesday, we welcome Future Girls Scouts at NS-LIJ. Thursday is the 100th Anniversary Gala Kick-off at the Hofstra Club from 6:30-8:30 p.m. And we conclude the week with the Adult Recognitions Celebration on Sunday afternoon, March 18th, at the Hillwood Commons on the LIU - Post Campus at 1:00 p.m.

We know that the Girl Scout Associations have events all week too. So if you are a Girl Scout, check with your community leaders to join in the fun! I hope you will join us at some of these celebrations!
