2015 Volunteer Recognition Awards

We at council are so excited to announce the kick-off of this year’s “Volunteer Recognition Award” program and website!!

 

This is the place where we come together as a council to celebrate and recognize the extraordinary volunteers who under their leadership are changing the world for girls! Why take the time to nominate an outstanding volunteer? Simply said, our volunteers make Girl Scouting possible!

 

 

Please forward this note to everyone on your team, including leaders, girls and their families. All our members should have an opportunity to nominate a volunteer that has committed themselves to the greater good and who continues to make a difference in the lives of our girls.
