I gazed through the door of an elementary classroom and longed to be part of that Brownie Troop even though I was too young! But before you knew it I was older and became a Brownie, Junior, Cadette and Senior even experiencing a Wide Opportunity in Washington D.C. at the National Beautification Conference. Later I married and had a daughter and son. As soon as my daughter was 5 and ready for Daisies she joined and I signed up as a volunteer or assistant leader. She got her Gold Award at the age of 14 and my son got Eagle Scout at 18. After my daughter aged out, I continued to be an Assistant Leader because I love doing it. I now have approximatley 37 years in Girl Scouting and have been given a wonderful service award from my Service Unit as well as other awards along the way. Both my daughter and I are now Life Members of Girl Scouts. Dorothy M. Lorenz
