Volunteer Celebration Events
We celebrate volunteers all year long, but once a year we are honored to bring together all for an appreciation & awards event.
Our 2018 regional celebration dates are confirmed (see below). Each celebration will feature awards (Girl Scout and council-specific), a regional/council update and more exciting surprises! These events will also be FREE of charge to all volunteers and family members who come to celebrate our award recipients.
