TO THE EDITOR: March 12, 2012, marked the 100th anniversary of the first Girl Scout meeting in the United States.
During the past 100 years, many girls have enjoyed and grown from a variety of experiences in Girl Scout programs.
Those things happened and the Girl Scout organization grew and thrived because of all the volunteers who made it happen for those 100 years.
National Volunteer Appreciation week is April 15-21 and Girl Scout Leader Day is April 22.
Contact someone you know who has been one of the volunteers that made or are currently making Girl Scouting happen in your community. Commend them for all they have done and continue to do that make Girl Scouts available to help girls on their journey to become caring, confident, courageous women.
Appreciation also goes to the community as a whole that supports all who make these experiences happen.
