My friends came to my door in brownie uniforms when I was in 1st grade. They asked my mom if I could join, she said “Yes” and I was hooked! I was in Brownies, Juniors, and Cadettes through 9th grade. I learned how to camp, make great friends, and love the outdoors. I volunteered my mom to be the “cookie mom” without her knowledge and she has never forgotten that. I participated as a troop leader, co-leader, assistant leader, cookie “mom”, adult volunteer organizer for Leader retreats for Tustin, and volunteer at Twilite Camp Tustin and sessional volunteer at Camp Scherman.
