Some ways to say Thank You!

Recognition need not be an occasional, formal activity. All volunteers benefit from the expressions of gratitude which come from those with whom they work or those especially made by a girl or troop. On a day-to-day basis, a simple thank you is valued and sometimes counts more than the occasional recognition. When and how the recipient is recognized will make the expression of gratitude memorable. You can also find more ideas on our Pinterest board!

Some events to keep in mind for recognition would include:

•    October 31 – Juliette Gordon Low’s birthday
•    February 22 – Thinking Day
•    March 12 – The birthday of Girl Scouting in the United States
•    April 22 – Leader’s Day
•    National Volunteer’s Week – the last full week of April
•    Immediately following service rendered
•    Year-end Court of Award Ceremony
•    Service Unit meeting
•    Special recognition event
•    Board or club meeting of an outside group rendering a service
