Volunteer Letter to the Editor

April 11, 2008

To the Editor:

On behalf of Girl Scouts of Connecticut, I would like to take this opportunity to extend my personal thanks and heartfelt appreciation to the 21,000 adult members and Girl Scout volunteers in Connecticut who help make the Girl Scout program possible for nearly 55,000 girls in 169 cities and town. An organization such as ours would not be possible without the time, talent, dedication and kindness of volunteers. April is national volunteer month. During the month of April, we want to publicly recognize volunteers – those that give of their time to serve others our volunteers and adult members are invaluable and inspiring individuals who have a profound impact on every girl they serve. I salute all volunteers and say “Thank you”.

Volunteers contribute their talents in a variety of ways; from mentoring girls in learning activities at regular meetings, to one time presentations on their area of expertise or career, to modeling leadership or community service, to camp clean-up or participation on the board of directors or a committee. With each and every commitment, volunteers enable Girl Scouts, the state’s largest organization serving girls, to have a positive impact on girls’ lives.

Time is a valuable contribution in today’s busy world. Girl Scout volunteers are especially generous in their dedication to helping girls in a world filled with more competing challenges and choices. And they lead by example. In Girl Scouts girls learn that giving back to their communities is a special gift. It is a choice that keeps on giving for the person who is served and the person giving. During this month of volunteer appreciation and especially on April 22nd, Girl Scout Leader’s Day, Girl Scouts of Connecticut extends a grateful, “thank you” to all volunteers, and especially our amazing Girl Scout volunteers. The girls you are helping today will become the leaders and volunteers of tomorrow who will continue your legacy of service for the next generation of Girl Scouts.
