To the Editor:

This holiday season, I would like to express my gratitude to the tens of thousands of people across the state whose dedication and hard work make Girl Scouting in Connecticut possible.

The support our friends give through their time, talents and generous donations is both appreciated and needed, particularly in such a historic year for Girl Scouting across the country.

Thank you for your tireless efforts to support our 47,300 girls, helping them discover about themselves and their values, connect with others to develop healthy relationships, and take action in their communities to make the world a better place.

On behalf of Girl Scouts of Connecticut, I also want to thank everyone who supported us during our historic 100th anniversary this year.

Whether you helped our girls achieve their goals during the cookie program, were one of 8,000 people to attend our Girl Scout 100th Jubilee at the Durham fairgrounds, or had a girl attend our Girl Scout International Camporee at Camp Laurel in Lebanon in August, you were a key part of our year-long celebration.

This amazing year would not have been possible without the support and dedication of our volunteers, staff and, most importantly, you.

Thank you for helping us celebrate 100 years of building girls of courage, confidence and character, who make the world a better place.

I would like to wish everyone a safe, healthy holiday season and happy New Year.

Mary Barneby
