    Mahopac, N.Y. – 04/28/2014 – Senator Greg Ball (R, C, I – Patterson) presented four girls from Mahopac Girl Scout Troop 1566 with New York State Senate Proclamations for achieving the Girl Scout Gold Award on Sunday afternoon at Four Brothers Restaurant in Mahopac.

    According to the Girl Scout Troop 1566 program, the Girl Scout Golf Award is the highest award girls can earn in Girl Scouting. It represents a girl’s commitment to herself and to her community as she focuses on leadership, career exploration, personal challenges and completing a lasting project that will benefit her community. It takes many hours of preparation, planning and work to accomplish the goals a girl has set for herself. Once she has completed the project, she must come before a review committee to present her project highlighting her journey to the Gold.
