A Message from the CEO

Dear Members, Volunteers, Parents, Alumnae and Friends of GSEP,

 

It is an exciting and busy time of year at GSEP!  Cookie season is in full swing, we're putting the final touches on Summer Camp preparations, and anticipating the annual Take the Lead events!

 

Take the Lead will kick off on March 4 in Philadelphia, with Berks County (April 8) and Lehigh Valley (April 29) events to follow.  Take the Lead is a very special event for GSEP and a unique leadership-development program. The girl-led production offers young women a chance to gain important public speaking and presentation skills, while honoring women leaders in our community. 

This year, we are thrilled to celebrate eleven distinguished women who make a difference every day in their respective fields and beyond.  

 

To read more about this year's honorees and learn how you can support Girl Scouts by joining us at Take the Lead, visit our website.  

 

You can keep up to date on everything that's going on at GSEP by following us on Facebook and Twitter. And don't forget to let us know what you're up to as well! You can check out some of the photos that troops have shared with us recently at the end of this email.

 

Yours in Scouting,

Natalye Paquin
