I am active in
supporting the Northern Pine Girl Scout Council and the Voyageurs Area
Council of the Boy Scouts. Girl Scouting and Boy Scouting provide
opportunities for young people to explore a wide variety of interests
and try activities that they might never be able to experience in
their own families. Both programs have a strong emphasis on
outdoor adventure and nature.
I learned to love
camping, hiking, canoeing and swimming through Girl Scouts. I
have gone on to share these activities with my own family and friends.
When I was a Cadette leader, I took Girls canoeing in the BWCA and
biking around Madeleine Island. We were the first Girl Scout
troop to participate in Okpik, the Boy Scout High Adventure base for
When my sons were
younger, I was a Cub Scout leader and a Boy Scout Volunteer. I
saw my sons develop good friendships and learn important skills and
values. I cultivated lasting friendships with other volunteers.
