The council has received a few requests from Girl Scouts across the country looking for Troops to be pen pals with in celebration of the 100th.Interested? Take a look at the requests to see if your Troop may be interested.
Dear Fellow Girl Scout,
To celebrate 100 years of being “a sister to every girl
scout” my Daisy troop has decided to connect with 100 different troops from
across the US. If you could please provide me with the mailing address of one
or two troops in your area that I could contact. The girls will be writing
short pen-pal letters and we will mail them to the troops with the hope that we
will receive letters back. We are hoping to connect with girls from all levels
and areas of Girl Scouts.
Thank you for your time,
312 Sixth St.
Farmington, MO 63640
My name is Jessica Whittaker
and I am the Special Events Coordinator for Franklin County Girl Scouts in the
state capitol of Frankfort, KY. I am also a recent former Membership Specialist
that served a rather large area in central Kentucky with the Girl Scouts of
Kentucky’s Wilderness Road Council in Lexington, KY.
As apart of my roll as the
Special Events Coordinator for the county, I have taken on the task of starting
a Pen Pal program for girls in each of our state capitol’s. We have about 27
troops in Franklin County and I would love to pair these troops with troops in
your state capitol. Could you help me in this effort? I would like to get this
started as soon as possible, well at least before summer begins.
With this being the year of
the girl, we would like to see girl’s reaching out across the country and the
world to each other and sharing their experiences with one another.
If you would be so kind, would
you give my information to whichever Membership Specialist (that’s what my
position was called in Lexington!) who would be able to help me with this
project? I know your schedules are busy and hectic, anything that I can do to
make this the easiest on your staff as possible is my goal.
