Never a dull moment.

Girl Scouts Honor their Volunteers-Volunteer Appreciation Week is April 21-27; Leader’s Day is April 22

April 15, 2013

During Volunteer Appreciation week from April 21-27, Girl Scouts of Connecticut will honor the 19,000 volunteers that are an essential part to Girl Scouting in Connecticut. Throughout the nation, all Girl Scout organizations will be taking a moment to thank the volunteers as the backbone of the organization, recognizing them for their outstanding work and time given to furthering the cause of girls.

In addition, Leader’s Day is celebrated on April 22, when time is taken by the girls and parents to recognize the valuable contributions of Girl Scout Troop and Group Leaders throughout the state and nationwide.

“We can’t stress enough how vital our 19,000 volunteers are to Girl Scouts of Connecticut,” said Mary Barneby, CEO, Girl Scouts of Connecticut. “They are the reason we are able to reach over 47,300 girls statewide with a variety of programs and activities. An organization such as ours would not be possible without their time, talent, and dedication to our mission: building girls of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place. We are proud to have them as part of our organization and are grateful to each and every one of them.”
