Our Juliette Low Leadership Society held a fabulous tea in the home of Sally Hughes (seated at left). Among the notable guests is the legendary Ann Graves (pictured right), who started the society years ago. Seated between these two amazing women, our own Girl Scout, Julia, shared the afternoon with the expansive group of ladies and imparted an eloquent speech on what Girl Scouting means to her.
As always, our Girl Scouts make me so proud! We truly do have the most remarkable young women around.
And a side note ... while I have a plethora of beautiful photos of the event, this one tickles me because of Paula's reflection in the mirror. She is truly the event diva for all things Juliette Low!

Little miss Abigayle spoke to an important crowd at the Annual Meeting for Girl Scouts of Magic Empire Council and received a standing ovation. She shared a bit about her Bronze Award, which brought her on an unexpected path that went beyond a good deed. Inspired by her cousin who is faced with immune deficiency challenges, she attempted to get 100 new plasma donors. She didn't meet her goal ... she was on her way to 300! The company that she worked with recognized her with a plaque and when the national organization found out what she had done, they flew her and her cousin to Florida to speak at their meeting as well.
Aren't our Girl Scouts amazing? This little 10 year old is already making an impact on her community and the lives within it. I'm so proud to be a Girl Scout!
Speaking of proud to be Girl Scouts ... we are all proud to become Girl Scouts of Eastern Oklahoma! The vote to accept the plan and agreement of merger passed unanimously.
