As I traveled the state visiting with our girls and volunteers, I can say we are doing amazing work daily and transforming lives. Not only our girls lives but also the people in their communities. As I traveled through Santa Fe I learned of Troop 10514 collecting over 700 lbs of food for Kids Helping Kids. Girl Scouts at Rio Grande High School presented an impressive study on issues affecting girls in their schools and presented a “take action� opportunity to get involved and make a difference. In Los Lunas I attending the Ceremony for Retiring of our Flags with Troop 10080. That will bring tears to your eyes- to watch our girls with such a sense of patriotism and respect for our flag. I also met with a Rio Rancho troop and talked with the girls about careers and I have no doubt that those girls will become the next leaders in their chosen field. And then I was tremendously touched by one young lady that explained that as a CEO I had protected her in a very difficult situation. Thank you to our volunteers and staff who are the leaders behind the leaders making this good work happen. My appreciation to you for your dedication to transforming lives and communities. Another great milestone for me this year was watching Hoffman Hall at Camp Elliott Barker become a fully functioning Hall. We have bathrooms, showers and a beautiful fully equipped kitchen. The roads are like driving a Cadillac on a velvet road! And our roofs no longer leaks at Rancho del Chaparral and our water valves no longer burst. Much was accomplished this year through the generosity of spirit from our wonderful donors. Thank you for investing in the future of our girls. Thank you for being part of Girl Scouts and helping grow and nurture our future leaders, Peggy Sanchez Mills, CEO
