On May 17, there will be an astronomy program for Seniors and Ambassadors at Camp Winding River.

We want to thank everyone who has joined Daisy's Circle in the past two months, including our new Founding Members who joined at the Annual Meeting and Adult Recognition Luncheon on April 12.

 

Volunteers and parents like you who join Daisy's Circle are helping to ensure that our mission for girls is sustained. You help develop programs like STEM, you help make improvements to camp properties, and you ensure all girls can receive the unique benefits of Girl Scouting

 

You are all leaders and role models. You understand that getting girls where we want them to be takes an investment of time, talent, and treasure. You are doing all three.Thank you!
