My career in Girl Scouts began in Cincinnati,Ohio with a very knowledgeable woman who was one of my best friend’s mother and a graduate nurse. Our First Aid badge was well taught with her expertise. This woman”s knowledge didn’t stop at nursing, however, she was an expert gardener who was invaluable in helping us earn our Gardening Badge. A Cooking Badge was also mastered with her culinary guidance. In all, I mastered 12 badges under her leadership! The one I remember especially with great fondness was our Traveler Badge. We collected clothes hangers from hither, thither, and yon, among other fund raisers to travel to Washington, D.C.- a character building and fun trip I will not forget. I am nearly 80 years old now, and Mrs. Grace Norton made a difference in my life.
