All the best of Girl Scouts

It's sometimes stunning how dedicated people can be to Girl Scouts.

We've seen women give up time with their husbands to take a troop camping. A dad will miss the "big game" to witness his little girl as she changes a tire to earn a badge. People use their personal vacation time to accompany a group of teenage girls to the Grand Canyon for an entire week. A strong military man just back from active duty will literally break down in tears as his "baby" receives her Girl Scout pin for the first time.

It's not only Girl Scout families. Professionals give their time freely to let girls "walk in their shoes," exposing a new generation to career options and choices. Employees from a local company will labor tirelessly at our properties for hours, painting, clearing brush and performing general maintenance. And they'll come back to help us year after year, sharing their strong backs and enthusiasm.

And there are those who open their wallets freely, all to benefit the girls.

It's amazing, and we see it every day.

These are the best parts of Girl Scouts. What are the best parts of Girl Scouts in your life?
