The Indian Trails Service Unit 512, based at Fort Drum, recently was honored for outstanding service with the President's Award by Girl Scouts of NYPENN Pathways.
The President's Award recognizes the efforts of a service-delivery team or committee whose exemplary service in support of delivering the Girl Scout leadership experience surpassed team goals and resulted in significant, measurable impact toward reaching the council's overall goals.
Members of Indian Trails Service Unit 512 also were rewarded with free programming at any of the NYPENN camp facilities this fall for selling 124 percent more cookies this year over last within the council. Some 175 girls from 14 troops that meet on Fort Drum came together to sell a total of 24,819 boxes of cookies during the 2013 cookie season.
The girls and leaders would like to thank everyone who helped support the local organization by donating or buying Girl Scout cookies. The public’s generosity will allow the girls to have an experience of a lifetime this fall at Camp Comstock, which is located on Cayuga Lake near Ithaca.
Indian Trails Service Unit 512 is currently seeking adult volunteers. Due to the massive turnover rates on Fort Drum, many leaders will be moving on to other duty stations. In order to meet the need in the community, which has grown over the last year, the organization seeks volunteers who are willing to promote the Girl Scout mission of building girls of courage, confidence and character who make the world a better place. Girl Scouts is open to girls in kindergarten through grade 12.
If you would like to volunteer or have a daughter who is interested in joining a troop, contact Edie Roggie, community development manager, at 782-1890, ext. 2213.
