St.Theresa's Girl Scout Troops 1089,1091,1095 and 1096 in the Bronx visited East Haven Rehab Center on Saturday. The girls did some Holiday arts and crafts with the residents and sang Holiday songs. Then they went caroling on the floors to sing for the residents who were unable to leave their rooms. They handed each resident a homemade Christmas card. What a great way to spend a Saturday afternoon! They clearly made a lot of people very happy.

Cookie season is in full swing, and this week's #TBT post fits perfectly with the theme! Our very own Shayla Scarlett, GSGNY's Director of Institutional Philanthropy and Strategic Partnerships, not only started as a Girl Scout, but was featured on the Thin Mint cookie box starting in 1990 – and stayed on it for the next ten years! Says Shayla: "The photo followed me all the way to college!"

Congresswoman Carolyn Maloney is interviewed by a Girl Scout, 7 days ago
Portraits in Leadership—Girl Scouts Interview Women Members of Congress In a series of interviews with female members of the United States Congress, Girl Scouts across the country sat down with their Congresswomen to learn about their individual leadership journeys and discover what inspired them to take on leadership roles. The interviews gave Girl Scouts an opportunity to ask their Members of Congress for advice about the skills and the character girls will need to develop in order to lead our world in the twenty-first century. Seventy percent of the women in the U.S. Senate and 57 percent of the women in the House of Representatives are Girl Scout alumnae; but regardless of whether or not they were Girl Scouts, each Congresswoman spoke of the value of having an organization such as Girl Scouts to help girls develop leadership qualities. Girls Scouts profiled women members of Congress—both Republicans and Democrats—to highlight their advice to girls everywhere who aspire to become leaders in their communities. Click on the video link to discover what women Members of Congress have to say about the important role Girl Scouts plays in developing leadership skills in girls. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MMOVtkF6tGQ
