I have been a Girl Scout for over 70 years beginning as a Brownie in Brooklyn, NY. When my father died at age 49, my mother moved the family to Hanover, PA. It was there that Girl Scouting really became an important part of my life. Our Intermediate troop leader was the mother of one of my best friends and we had wonderful experiences. The girls in this troop stayed together through Seniors and helped convert a farm purchased by the council into a camp. We planted trees, cleared brush, and staffed the Day Camp. In 1959, I was selected to attend the Senior Roundup in Colorado Springs. That event was truly life changing and provided the momentum for many more Girl Scout experiences. as an adult Girl Scout, I served as a troop leader, service unit chair, district chair, board vice president, director for 5 wide opportunities, volunteer at The World Conference in Tarrytown New York, delegate to several National Council Meetings, leader of an International Partnership Project with the Girl Guides of Kenya, and Program Director for the Penn Laurel Girl Scout Council. I was able to travel to all four World Centers to participate in Thinking Day programs. I have also attended many of the Senior Roundup Reunions where memories are relived and Girl Scour friendships continue. The photo I chose for this story is of me and my lifelong Girl Scout friend Diana Weaver at the 50th reunion of the Colorado Roundup. I could write volumes about my Girl Scout experiences and how they have shaped the person I became. I am so grateful to have been part of this very special sisterhood and I continue to support the positive experiences being offered to today’s girls.
