Savage's "Appreciating Girl Scout/Guide
A Girl Scout volunteer is
- Used to have a little
time to spare.
- Saw something that needed
to be done, and couldn't persuade her conscience to let
someone else do it.
- Wages a constant battle to
keep her Girl Scout Stuff confined to one corner, then
one room, then one house.
- Cheerfully endures inroads
on her own pleasure and convenience because she is
beckoned by a goal that overshadows them.
- Is young at heart because
youth comes, not from a fountain, but from exposure to
those who have it.
- Gives to fill inner needs,
be it with hamburgers, hugs of encouragement.
- Has a pet conservation
project that is our young people, because she considers
them to be our greatest natural resource.
- Sees the beauty in the
budding personality of a child and wants to preserve and
enhance that beauty as it comes to full bloom.
- Is willing to give of her
time, patience, and herself to leave the world better
than she found it.
- Is the living fulfillment
of the phrase "...to help where I am needed."
