Today's message promotes a group for which Joe has great respect: The Girl Scouts of Maine. The Girl Scouts seek to build girls of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place. Worldwide the Girl Scouts are 2.6 million strong—1.8 million girls and 800,000 adults who believe in the power of every G.I.R.L. (Go-getter, Innovator, Risk-taker, Leader) to change the world.
Tonight, Thursday December 7th, is The Girl Scouts of Maine's Women of Distinction Gala, an annual event that celebrates women whose individual excellence and high levels of achievement distinguish them as outstanding members of their communities and exemplary role models for today's girls. Girl Scouts of Maine proudly announces that Dr. Laura Thompson, Director of Sustainable Development & Policy Initiatives at Sappi North America, will be honored at the 21st Annual Women of Distinction Gala on December 7, 2017, at The Westin Portland Harborview hotel.
Joe thanks the Girl Scouts of Maine for the great work they do, and hopes tonight's event is a smash success. Joe also says congrats to Dr. Thompson!
