Saranac woman celebrates 45 years of girl scouting

The girls in Candys troop enjoyed working on their badges, going camping, attending council events, attending and working at the Lake Clear Girl Scout Camp, and going on trips to New York city and Washington D.C.

During many of these years in girl scouting, Candy was doing double duty, also serving as a den mother for the boy scouts as her son Scott moved up the boy scouting ranks, earning his Eagle Scout Award in 2005.

Currently, Candy provides consultation for girls working on their Personal Management Badge. Area girl scout leaders often call her for advice or help, and Candy is always happy to give either.

Candy has a lot of experience and gives us a lot of input, said Lyn Bushey, the Dannemora/Saranac/Cadyville Service Unit Chair. Whether its changing documents or giving scholarships, she knows how to do it. She helps us follow traditions and bring them into the future of girl scouting.

I have always believed in the scouting program, Candy stated. I believe in the program they learn, the values that are taught, and the life long friendships that are made.
