The Girl Scouts of Queen Anne’s County (Service Unit 88) held an Adult Recognitions Dinner on June 4, 2012 at Centreville United Methodist Church. Volunteers enjoyed a dinner prepared by Helen Todd Caterers while receiving awards for outstanding service and leadership to Service Unit 88.
Longevity awards were given to 30 leaders for 5 years of service, 12 leaders for 10 years of service and 2 leaders for 15 years of service. Green Angel awards were given to 20 leaders and adult volunteers for excellent service to a troop. Outstanding Leader Awards were given to four leaders and five troops were honored as Super Troops. The Service Team (18 members, including 2 teen delegates) and Event Coordinators were also recognized for their service.
Guest speaker for the evening, Samantha Lansinger, shared a letter explaining what Girl Scouting meant to her, “Girl Scouts is more than the awards, the activity on the resume, or the friendships. It is a sisterhood that develops extraordinary leaders and young women who have influenced society for the best”. Ms. Lansinger is a 2011 graduate of Queen Anne’s County High School.
Many local businesses provided door prizes for the event.
The Girl Scouts wish to thank their local supporters and community partners, who assist us throughout the year. The Girl Scouts of Queen Anne’s County is run entirely by volunteers and served 381 girls last year. New volunteers are always needed to assist with troops.
