I had the privilege of being a Girl Scout all of my years growing up. But It was great luck to have Flossye Turner as my leader for about 8 years and it was my honor to be able to work with her to earn many badges, awards and take on so many unique and amazing challenges...most from coming from her own sense of adventure and wonder. From sewing our sit-upon and those awful khaki uniforms that we worn around NYC, to skiing at Appalachian and Colorado, to backpacking western NC and south eastern VA and visiting the Ramp Festival, to spelunking and sailing all over the place. We had lots of adventures and amazing experiences which has made my life rich! And none them would have happened without Flossye. She taught us life skills, independence and helped us build self-confidence. Which is perfect for us to honor her with a gift to Girl Scouting where they build girls of courage, confidence and character - exactly what she did for us!
