Girl Scout Week 2013: The Future Is Now
The week of March 10, 2013 is a special time for Girl Scouts everywhere. This is Girl Scout Week. During this special time, on March 12th, we will recognize our 101st birthday. As with all birthdays, this is a milestone …a mark in time to stop for a moment and think about things such as far we’ve come, and what our future holds.
Girl Scouts of Kentuckiana has come far during our rich and storied history. We have so many wonderful successes and victories to celebrate. Our girls are doing incredible work in their communities. We are fortunate to have a dedicated corps of volunteers, and an awesome staff who understand the commitment it takes to carry out the important mission to build girls of courage, confidence and character who make the world a better place.
I want to take this opportunity, on the occasion of Girl Scout Week to wish everyone who supports our work and makes it possible a wonderful and meaningful Girl Scout Week.
For 100 years, Girl Scouts has provided girls with more ways to learn and lead than any other organization. As we enter our next century of service to girls, our focus on girl leadership is more important than ever.
Marian Wright Edelman, noted founder of the Children’s Defense Organization, once said, “You can’t be what you can’t see.” Thank you for being part of helping today’s girls see what that have the potential to be. Thank you for helping today’s girls become tomorrow’s leaders.
On behalf of the 22,000 girl members and 7,000 adult members and volunteers who form the backbone of our council, in honor of Girl Scout Week 2013 I am issuing this call to action. Help us build strong girls ready to become tomorrow’s leaders. Volunteer. Make a donation. Encourage girls you know to join Girl Scouting.
When it comes to investing in girls, the future is now. There is no better time to make sure girls have the skills, experience and knowledge they need to succeed. There is noone better prepared than Girl Scouts to make this happen.
