Girl Scouts of Suffolk County honor Scott Maskin

Girl Scouts of Suffolk County honor Scott Maskin 05/10/2013 Dear Family, Friends and Colleagues, I am excited to be chosen as the Honoree for the Girl Scouts of Suffolk County’s 2013 Golf Outing. I currently serve on the board of directors and my involvement with the Girl Scout organization goes back to the early 90’s. Both of my daughters were fortunate to enjoy the Girl Scout experience for many years and my wife was a troop leader. Cookies, nuts, car washes and badge earning helped make my girls and most of their friends who they are today and I’m sure that each of you have benefited from the Girl Scout organization in your own way. Aside from the direct benefit to our children, the Girl Scouts work is endless for our troops and veterans, the handicapped and elderly. In this day and age the positive role model and message that our kids get from being a scout is essential. I’m so proud to say that the newest badge a troop can earn is the SUNation Solar badge. Through a joint effort between SUNation Solar and the Girl Scouts, the Camp Edey facility in Bayport is generating its own clean renewable electricity and teaching their troops the importance of protecting the environment through smart energy choices. The first Girl Scout troop in Suffolk was formed in 1915 and currently the agency serves 43,000 girls through the efforts of a very small staff and 9,000 volunteers. Girl Scout funding is earned every year through fundraising efforts and the hard work of the scouts and volunteers. There is no big guy behind the curtain donating millions of dollars and about 89 cents of every dollar raised goes directly back to the girls through programs and scholarships. As a board member I can tell you that the Girl Scouts of Suffolk County staff run a tight ship and squeeze every nickel that they can from a dollar spent. While the Girl Scouts are part of a national organization, all monies to support the effort are generated locally and whenever possible spent locally. It is my and the Golf Committee’s intention to make this the most successful golf outing ever and I need your help. If you are receiving this letter you know me well and you know that I don’t take these things lightly. Please review the flyer for the outing. Nothing would make me happier than to see you out there enjoying the day losing golf balls and watching me lose mine. If you can’t make it, then please come to the dinner/cocktail hour, sponsor a tee sign, cart, take out a journal ad or donate a basket. Your parents and their parents supported the Girl Scouts for you, please support us. My Best, Scott Maskin smaskin@sunationsolarsystems.com Visit http://www.gssc.us for registration information
