 around and seeing all of those seats that were once filled

Many of the girls raised money for their trips by
participating in council product sales and by organizing
monthly dances for elementary school kids.

For 96-years, Girl Scouting has made a difference in the lives of young girls. In
over half of those years, Mickey Smith has been directly involved. The 88-year old
first joined Girl Scouts 49 years ago. Today, the Oceanport resident still enjoys
camping and working with girls, sharing the wealth of her knowledge with
them. She also remains active with her Girl Scouting peers as a member of the
Monmouth Chapter of the Girl Scout Alumnae Club.

         very girl dreams of being a movie star and walking a red carpet. Half of that dream came true for Emma Moran, a 13-
         year old Cadette Girl Scout from Hazlet Troop 817 when she joined a Girl Scout from the Greater New York Council and
         walked the red carpet at the New York premiere of Kit Kittredge: An American Girl at the historic Ziegfeld Theater.
    Starring Academy Award nominee Abigail Breslin, the movie is about a brave, compassionate and determined young girl
    growing up during the Great Depression. In a world filled with need and hardship, she always looks for the truth, even if it
    is not the popular choice.
    In addition to walking the red carpet, Emma attended the after-party at the American Girl Store on Fifth Avenue and had
    the opportunity to meet many of the movie’s stars.

                                                                     Q: What was your favorite part about
