Approximately 90 individuals and four service units (a group of volunteers representing a town or several towns) from across eastern Massachusetts, as well the museum volunteer team, were recognized for their service, at the luncheon held on April 28 in Framingham.

Fong was awarded the 20-Year Girl Scout Membership Pin for an enduring commitment to the organization, and the President’s Award as Volunteer Support Specialist for several service units. Fong serves as a Troop Leader for local girls and is a Lifetime Member of Girl Scouts.

“Our volunteers are the heartbeat of our organization, and it is truly an honor to celebrate them,” said Denise Burgess, Chief Executive Officer, Girl Scouts of Eastern Massachusetts. “We are fortunate to partner with 15,000 passionate, dedicated, and caring individuals, who believe so deeply in our mission to build girls of courage, confidence, and character and make the world a better place, that they devote extraordinary amounts of time and energy as Girl Scout volunteers.”

Nominated by their peers and council staff, these volunteers have been recognized for giving service that is above and beyond the expectations of their position. All awards require one nomination, one endorsement and the approval of the Girl Scouts of Eastern Massachusetts’ Board of Directors.
