Mark Your Calendars for Our YWOD Events!

We will be honoring 24 young women who have earned the prestigious Girl Scout Gold Award at our Young Women of Distinction events in May.

Each week, through the end of May, we'll feature one or more of these outstanding girls in our weekly news.  Join us at these events to honor these Girl Scouts, along with those earning the Silver and Bronze awards. Events

Maggie A. Maggie A of Parish, NY worked with the United Friends of Homeless Animals and other agencies throughout Oswego County to hold a pet care adoption fair. She believes her project was a success due to the number of groups that attended and more awareness was spread throughout the community about animal adoption. "I learned I can talk on the phone to people," Maggie said. "I learned I'm confident!  I was nervous at first when I started calling people, but after I talked to a few vendors, I realized it wasn't that hard."

"They are beautiful," said GSNYPENN COO Dianne Stancato. "On Sunday, March 4, he officially received his Eagle Scout Rank. I was very proud to be invited to share in his day. I loved the collaboration with the Boy Scouts and welcome future projects!"
