As we round the corner of our 101st birthday as Girl Scouts, I am not only proud to be part of the second century of Girl Scouting, but I am exceedingly proud of our dedicated volunteers who make this organization great in eastern Oklahoma.
Every year, over ten thousand girls receive the most amazing gifts: your time; your talents; and your resources. From your example, those girls also give of their time, talents, and resources to their communities and beyond. Your gift truly keeps on giving.
And during a time in our world when we see the news filled with stories of how others are taking ... taking life, taking belongings, even taking hope ... what you do is even more crucial as we all do our part to make this world a BETTER place. The Girl Scout Promise and Law takes on even greater meaning. Seeing it in action through our volunteers and girls is a privilege I will always hold dear.
Thank you for your service to girls, their families, and our community.
Happy Girl Scouting!
Roberta Preston, CEO
Girl Scouts of Eastern Oklahoma
