Hollis woman recognized for work

HOLLIS – Brandie Langfield of Hollis has been recognized for her service to Girl Scouts of the Green and White Mountains.

Langfield was presented with the New Found Treasure Award, which recognizes an adult volunteer who is new to Girl Scouting and has provided exemplary volunteer service. Such volunteers have made a significant, positive impact on a Girl Scout troop, community, or geographic area, and have gone above and beyond to provide an exceptional Girl Scout experience. The nominee has to have been a registered, approved Girl Scout volunteer for two years or less, and provided outstanding service to either girls or adults while in this Girl Scout volunteer role.

Langfield serves the council, which oversees Girl Scouts in New Hampshire and Vermont, as a troop leader. She has been a leader for less than a year, but has already shown great promise. She has utilized council resources for volunteer toolkit training, information on starting and managing a multi-level troop, planning and running a cookie booth, and has shown interest in a Daisy wilderness program. Her troop of kindergartners and first-graders has grown to 17 girls, and currently has two other leaders.

“Being a volunteer means giving one’s time, effort, and heart,” Girl Scouts of the Green and White Mountains CEO Patricia Mellor said. “Whether it’s through leading a troop, training to take girls outdoors, providing a ride, chaperoning a trip, helping to get cookies where they need to go, serving on our board of directors, or any of the myriad duties a volunteer takes on, you provide outstanding service and support to our council and our Girl Scouts.”
