Come this September 2020 I will have been a part of Girl Secouts for 70 years (not a mistake) yes 70 years. I started at 6 years old in a troop that my mother and her friend started for my best friend Mary Jo and I. Since then I have been involved in several troops as a Girl Scout or leader in 6 different states. Minnesota, Wisconsin,Ohio, New Jersey, and Texas! My hope for the Girl Scout community is to continue to be a part of every girls life. to teach them to become strong women and to be involved in Girl Scouting in what ever why they would like.
