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,

Hello, 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.  

Thank you!
