Since 1912, women everywhere have been positively influenced, even transformed, by their Girl Scout experience. Today, the group of Girl Scout alumnae is 59 million strong, and growing every day. These women are forever connected by their experiences, values, and love of Girl Scouting.
As one of these 59 million alumnae, you personally remember how transforming Girl Scout programs are in a girl’s life. Remember, as a Girl Scout, making your community a better place? Girl Scouts today are following in your footsteps, continuing to make the world better for all of us.
Girl Scouts of Colorado is proud to celebrate the legacy of one of our most cherished alumnae, Edna “Skipper” Hollis. In 2016, Skipper passed away at the age of 104, leaving a 94-year history of Girl Scouting as a girl and an adult volunteer. Skipper touched the lives of hundreds of girls, families, and volunteers and will be remembered for her love of the outdoors and the annual troop gathering she hosted at her Colorado cabin for more than six decades.
To make a gift in honor of Skipper, which will support opportunity grants to ensure any girl is able to attend camp, or to honor an alum who has made a difference in your life, donate now.
Connect with fellow Girl Scout alums by attending one of our many events throughout the state, help plan an event, and get the latest Girl Scout news in our quarterly e-newsletter.
