Thanksgiving is a wonderful time to reflect on the past year and remember all the things you’re thankful for. And this Thanksgiving, one Milwaukee area family is especially thankful for the courage, confidence, and character that their daughter and granddaughter learned through Girl Scouting. This past spring, 12-year-old Girl Scout Cadette Arianna recognized that her grandmother was dangerously ill and took the necessary steps to get her the medical attention she needed, resulting in saving her life.
Hurricane Sandy has affected millions of people, including many of our Girl Scout sisters along the East Coast. At least eight Girl Scout councils were directly impacted by the storm.
2012 is not only the 100th anniversary of Girl Scouts, but it's also the 25th anniversary of our very own Marion Chester Read Center, which is home to our Milwaukee area Service and Resource Center. On September 18, GSWISE hosted an open house and rededication ceremony to honor the past 25 years in this building and the people who came together to make this building a reality so we could better serve girls in our area.
