Volunteer Denise Raich loves her Girl Scout journey that began when she herself was a Brownie. After being a part of her daughter’s Girl Scouting experience, culminating in a Gold Award in 2020, she knew she wasn’t ready to stop volunteering. The adventures continue as she shares her dedication and knowledge with a younger generation.
A Girl Scout through and through, Denise took matters into her own hands when she discovered there wasn’t a Daisy troop for her daughter to join.
Undaunted, she enrolled her in the school Brownie troop and offered to volunteer with them. It wasn’t long before Denise became co-leader of Troop 41135. The next year, she became a leader and was a part of her daughter’s troop until her high school graduation.
Yet, Denise wasn’t ready to end the fun and adventure being a part of a troop offers. When the daughter of a close friend became a Girl Scout, she offered to co-lead Troop 41167.
“I want to help instill Girl Scout traditions and get back to the root of Girl Scouting. I want our girls to learn basic skills to help them in the real world like camping and cooking outdoors.” – Denise R.
