Thanks to her devoted family, Dorothea Palazzolo finally became a Girl Scout this month—on her 80th birthday! Dorothea’s son, Mike, planned the membership surprise for his mother, who he says always wanted to be a Girl Scout but never had the chance.
Our newest Girl Scout was enjoying a birthday dinner with her family when she was surprised with a framed resolution from GSSEM that read:
Awarding Lifetime Membership to
