The many facets of being a Girl Scout

Girl Scouts has always played a part in Susan Navratil’s life. “Girl Scouts has been an important part of my life since my first Brownie meeting in 1955. As an adult volunteer I rediscovered the courage and leadership skills that allowed me to start and successfully run three small businesses.”

The impact in her life multiplied over the years. “As a proud mother of a Gold Award Girl Scout I once again experienced the impact the organization has on its girl members. Although I have always enjoyed working with girls of all ages, there have been so many opportunities to work with other adult volunteers that have benefited me both personally and professionally. I think we sometimes forget that Girl Scouts can continue to be an integral part of one’s life as an adult volunteer outside of the troop setting.”

Susan supports Girl Scouts River Valleys’ through their monthly giving program, Daisy’s Circle. “Supporting an organization that one is passionate about can be challenging through the years as one’s income ebbs and flows. That is where Daisy’s Circle comes to the rescue. You aren’t asked to give or pledge a huge amount during an event or by a personal visit. Budgeting a monthly amount is easy and manageable.”
