Goodwill And Girl Scouts Partner To Honor Veterans

SCOOP

SRQ DAILY SATURDAY PERSPECTIVES EDITION SATURDAY APR 8, 2017

Goodwill Manasota and Girls Scouts of Gulfcoast Florida are teaming up for the Girl Scout Leadership Experience, a community project with the goal of honoring veterans, inspiring patriotism and embracing freedom. Girl Scout Cadettes, grades 6-8 will participate in a variety of activities to earn leadership badges and a Legacy of Valor patch. Participating Girl Scouts will be linked to a woman veteran through the Goodwill Manasota Veterans Task Force to learn first-hand the sacrifices that the veterans have made and how they have become leaders in the community. In addition, thanks to the Military Officers Association of Sarasota (MOAS), each Girl Scout will receive a booklet called Old Glory: A Guide to Displaying and Honoring Our Nation’s Flag to teach them follow the flag code and how to perform a flag retirement ceremony once it has become too worn or damaged to display.
