City woman honored for service to Scouts

NASHUA – Mary Slocum of Nashua was recognized for her more than 10 years of service to Girl Scouts of the Green and White Mountains with the council’s Honor Pin on May 13.

The pin recognizes adults who have performed beyond the expectations of their position and have supported the council’s goals in two or more geographic areas. Nominations are approved by the Adult Recognitions Task Group and the council’s board.

Slocum serves the council, which oversees Girl Scouts in New Hampshire and Vermont, as a troop leader and council trainer. She offers her time throughout the council for first aid and CPR training. She has been asked at the last minute to teach a class or two, and never says no. She schedules numerous trainings per month to as many members as possible. Slocum believes in being a sister to every Girl Scout and always behaves in a professional and caring way toward all.

“I cannot thank you enough for everything you do and everything you have given in service to our girls,” Girl Scouts of the Green and White Mountains CEO Patricia Mellor said. “Being a volunteer means giving one’s time, effort, and heart.”
