Friday, May 31, 2013, at Washington Street School in Franklin Square,

WHEREAS, Alexandra Busch, Gabriella Campos, Kayla Dipalma, Daniela

Sydney Stevenson are members of Girl Scouts of America Troop 1011; and
WHEREAS, Girl Scouting has cultivated in our nation's young people the
goals of building solid values of sisterhood and the importance of work-
ing with others, stimulating both mind and body, instilling pride, and
encouraging community service and success; and
WHEREAS, Girl Scouting has expanded the horizons of the countless
young women who have participated in the programs which have made Girl
Scouting an American and international institution; and
WHEREAS, The Girl Scout Bronze Award requires the Girl Scout Junior to
learn the leadership and planning skills necessary to follow through on
a project that makes a positive impact on her community; working toward
this award demonstrates her commitment to helping others, improving her
community and the world, and becoming the best she can be; and
WHEREAS, To earn the Bronze Award, these 19 Girl Scouts completed four
requirements; the first three required them to earn two badges related
to their Bronze Award project, complete one of the Girl Scout Signs, and
earn the Junior Aide Award, the Girl Scout Junior Leadership Award, or
two of four specified badges after which they completed the fourth
requirement, a Bronze Award Community service project which these Girl
Scouts planned, developed and executed; and
WHEREAS, The Bronze Award symbolizes a Girl Scout Junior's accomplish-
ments in Girl Scouting and community activities as she matures and works
to better her life and the lives of others; it is tangible evidence of
their high character and commitment, and is a harbinger of their future
service to their community, New York State and our nation; now, there-
fore, be it
RESOLVED, That this Legislative Body pause in its deliberations to
warmly congratulate these 19 Girl Scouts, recognizing their achievement
in earning the Girl Scout Bronze Award and wishing them success, health
and happiness; and be it further
RESOLVED, That a copy of this Resolution, suitably engrossed, be tran-
smitted to the aforementioned Girl Scouts.
