…do my duty to God and my country, to help other people at all times and obey the Girl Scout laws.” That’s how I remember the pledge, anyway.

No matter what they sell me, I always open the door to young people who are seeking to better themselves and the community. It’s part of my on-going pledge to “help other people at all times.”

Buon appetito.
