    It is with the greatest pride that the Floral Park-Bellerose-Stewart Manor Association of Girl Scouts announces the recipients of the Girl Scout Gold Award for June, 1999: Andrea Benvenuto, Meredith Rossbach and Virginia Slatic. With a beautiful ceremony at Adelphi University on June 6, the Girl Scouts of Nassau County recognized 33 outstanding Girl Scouts earning the Gold Award, the highest achievement in Girl Scouting. It is the culmination of a Senior Girl Scout's experience in Girl Scouting. Guests were welcomed by the president of Girl Scouts in Nassau, Pat Motschmann and the opening flag ceremony was conducted by members of our own Senior Girl Scout Troop 1224. Leaders Cathie Wall and Joyce O'Connor, family, friends, dignitaries, service team members, Principal Diane Kelly and Mayor Steve Corbett were able to come together to share in this very special moment. Every recipient displayed a presentation board summarizing their projects. Each girl must meet the following criteria: the completion of four interest projects, career exploration, leadership hours and a Senior Girl Scout challenge and then be interviewed to present their individual Gold Award project plans. The project has a minimum requirement of 50 hours and should meet a need beyond the Girl Scout community. FULL STORY
