Girl Scout Troop 889 began as a Daisy Troop in 2002. I have been the leader since the troop’s inception.
Okay! I know what you are thinking! How the heck does an ‘Ole’ Marine like me get involved with Girl Scouts? In 2002 my wife asked me to attend a meeting at La Canada Elementary. The meeting was about Girl Scouts and I was to bring back valuable ‘in-tell’ (information). I felt like a fish out of water and to make a long story short, by the end of the evening I had become the new leader of Daisy Troop 889. I now find myself leading two troops, Brownie’s 889 and Daisy’s 856. Trying to understand the transition from my past leadership experiences to the present, I have learned…that life’s about change.
