April is flying by!

What a fun and inspirational evening we had Wednesday night “schmoozing” with WNPR interviewer and host, Faith Middleton! On April 13, we joined Faith for an engaging conversation about her experience as a female journalist in the 80s, her passion for the advancement of girls and women, and the importance of community.

I’d like to thank WNPR’s wonderfully quirky Chion Wolf for emceeing and bringing a lot of fun and energy to the event. I’d also like to thank Diane Smith, GSOFCT Board Member, New York Times bestselling author, Emmy Award-winning journalist, and media personality for leading us in an engaging conversation with Faith—you both were wonderful!  And we were thrilled to hear from recent Gold Award recipients Helen and Jenelle who shared their Gold Award journeys.

Last but certainly not least, a BIG thanks to all of our supporters who joined us! Because of you, girls across every inch of the state will have the opportunity to discover the world around them, connect with others, and take action to make the world a better place.

Speaking of taking action, this year we are celebrating 100 Years of Changing the World—the Gold Award Centennial! The Gold Award is the highest award a girl can earn in Girl Scouting, and we are so proud of all of our girls who earn the highest awards.  

On April 27, we are inviting Silver and Gold Awardees to the State Capitol for our event, Lunch with Your Legislator. There, girls have the opportunity to meet with their local legislators, participate in a Gold Award round-table, take part in the pinning ceremony for our Honorary Troop at the Capitol, and take a tour of the Connecticut Supreme Court. If you know a girl who earned her Silver or Gold who may want to attend, there are still spots available!

Stay tuned for more information about our amazing Gold Awardees past and present and several additional special events we have planned throughout 2016.

Yours in Girl Scouting,
