From One Girl Scout to Another - Your Right to Vote

Hey girls my name is Kathlyn and I have been a Girl Scouts for 10 years. I wouldn't change it for the world. I encourage all girls to do there Bronze, Silver and Gold Awards. It is a lot of work but it makes you have a good feeling about yourself after you’re done. Enough about me let's get to the topic at hand, it is almost one month from the Girl Scout of Central & Southern NJ Annual Meeting. I hope you have all registered for the meeting. If not, everyone still has time.

 Any registered Girl Scout 14 and older can vote. Last year we voted on getting a proxy vote. You can read all about that on our website Last year's speaker spoke about the Journey's. There were booths about each level Journey's, so you could walk around and get information about them. This year, the guest speaker is Kathy Cloninger, CEO of the Girl Scout of the USA. She is the leader of the Girl Scouts in the whole country.

You can meet girls from all over our Council's area. Last year I meet two girls that I still talk to at least once a month. Last year everything was supposed to end at 3:30PM, but we had to wait so we could get enough people to vote. This year, because of proxy voting, you can vote by proxy if you can’t make it. Last year it was on the same day as the PSAT's. This year it's the week after it. You can still make it if you have a game or practice after 3:30 PM. So, what are you waiting for? Vote or register today!

Yours in Girl Scouting,
