Girl Scouts of Citrus

We were honored to have Kristen chat with us at our February meeting about our local council of Girl Scouts.  Our council, Citrus, consists of over 18,000 girls and 7,000 volunteers and covers 6 counties in Central Florida.

Since the founding of the Girl Scout Movement more than a century ago, Daisy’s small circle of girls has grown to include nearly 2 million girl members and more than 50 million Girl Scout alums—united across the decades by a spirit of lifelong friendship and shared adventure and the desire to do big things to make the world a better place.

Right now, the girls are in the middle of Cookie Sales – yes, it’s that time again!  Can’t find cookies – no worries, just log on their webpage: https://www.citrus-gs.org/ and put your address in the box – and POW! COOKIES!!!  In my family, it’s a toss-up which are our favorites – either Thin Mints or Peanut Butter Patties.  What is your favorite?

Kristen also announced that in 2020, Citrus Council will be hosting the National Conference here in Orlando.   Citrus Council is looking to start creating partnerships now for this huge project.  The conference is in Oct. 2020. This conference is held every 3 years and Orlando is expected to draw over 30,000 girls and their families.   Please contact Kristen directly for more information or to help – mailto:kbedard@citrus-gs.org.
