It’s been nearly 28 years since Emily Wilkins put on her first Brownie uniform. Emily’s love of Girl Scouts, her troop leaders, her scout sisters, and Samoas led her to bridge through each level and ultimately earn the Gold Award. More than a quarter century later, the same loves drive her to serve as a council facilitator for GSOH. “I truly believe that the Girl Scout organization helped mold me into a person of courage, confidence, and character.
As recently as last year, Emily has also served as a troop leader. “Being involved at the troop level again after so many years was a real trip down memory lane. Our troop went camping late last spring and it brought back some amazing memories, especially when I had to walk about a quarter mile to use the latrine in the middle of the night!”
Now staying at home with two children under the age of 3, Emily is using her Girl Scout experiences to advocate for GSOH, to support new and returning volunteers through council training classes, and by serving on an alumnae committee.
“My role with Girl Scouts has changed, and will continue to change with each season of life,” she said. “I hope that one day my daughter will share my passion for Girl Scouts and I’ll be able to serve at the troop level again. In the meantime, I’m so happy there’s a place for me with GSOH during this time of my life!”
Trefoil 1 is a group of adults whose mission is to support the Girl Scouts of Ohio’s Heartland in a variety of ways. For over 15 years, we have supplied the Girl Scout Gold Award pins for girls who complete the requirements.In addition, we have supported the camps with the purchase of canoes, flag poles, the windmill at Becky’s Pond at Camp Ken-Jockety, a pool sweeper for Camp Molly Lauman, and a sound system forthe Elam Center, to name a few.
We meet twice a year for socializing and keeping up with current Girl Scout trends; pay annual dues of $10 each fall; and participate in only one fundraising activity, our annual ‘non-event,’ the Thinking Day Tea. These funds are used to supply the Gold Award pins.
All interested adults are invited to participate in the fall meeting, Trefoil 1 membership, and/or the Thinking Day Tea. We hope you’ll join us!
