The Girl Scout Promise

On my honor, I will try:
To serve God and my country,
To help people at all times,
And to live by the Girl Scout Law.

The Girl Scout Law

I will do my best to be
honest and fair,
friendly and helpful,
considerate and caring,
courageous and strong, and
responsible for what I say and do,
and to
respect myself and others,
respect authority,
use resources wisely,
make the world a better place, and
be a sister to every Girl Scout.

Hi there,

Welcome to my Girl Scout page. This is really not a troop page, in spite of how it's listed in some other places. Meanwhile ....

My husband Nick Corsano and I are leaders, for 16+ years of the legendary Cadette Girl Scout troop 757. As of Sept, '98, the troop is a dual level one with both Cadettes and Seniors. Nick and I are both Trainers and involved in the Girl Scouts of San Francisco Bay Area at many levels.

Among the many things Cadette GS troop 757 has done is hike the Chilkoot Trail in August of 1985. The six of us who went consider it a major accomplishment in our lives.

In August of 1995, we attended the Shakespeare Festival in Ashland, Oregon. Nick and I think that taking adolescents to see "Macbeth" is just "too cool". I strongly recommend this trip to any theater buffs.

The Cadette/Senior GS troop 757 had a great time on our trip to Atlanta and Savanah. We saw many things including the Martin Luther King Memorial and, of course, the Juliette Low Birthplace. I'm trying to find some time to write it all up and post a picture of us in Victorian dress.

Ongoing activites include working on the Silver or Gold Award and getting ready for the next Camporee. Summer activities include river rafting, Orienteering, baseball games or whatever.
During the winter holiday season, we also participate in To Kids From Kids . This is a Council-wide service project which provides gifts to children in group foster care. These children are often missed by other programs because they have been recently removed from abusive home situations. Our girls make wonderful stuffed animals to give away and help with the annual packing day. Their leader tends to sew a lot, too.

At the request of some Girl Scout friends, I now have Girl Scout Troop 757's record keeping forms available at this site.

Because I believe in working smarter not harder, I'm not longer keeping a list of Girl Scout sites. Instead, I refer you to one of these:
I am the chair of the Jewish Girl Scout committee at the SF Bay Area Council. This is under the auspices of The National Jewish Girl Scout Committee.
It strikes me, as I work away at this, that computers, especially the web, as well as Girl Scouting, strongly resemble what Betty Friedan said about housework, they all expand to fill the available time.
