The Girl Scouts of Nassau County (GSNC) recently honored Lisa Elbogen for her adult volunteer service and lifelong achievements with the Girl Scouts. Lisa received the GSUSA Appreciation Pin, which recognized her service in support of delivering the Girl Scout Leadership Experience and her memorable impact in at least one community where Girl Scouting is offered.
In addition to Troop Leadership, Lisa has held two Service Team positions, most recently taking on the role of Association Treasurer. Lisa will continue to serve on this committee as an adult volunteer and use her passion and knowledge of Girl Scouts to benefit the Girl Scouts community.
The ceremony was held at the Hillwood Commons Auditorium at the LIU-Post campus in Brookville.

Plainview resident Gail Wurtzel will be leading her team, Memories of Miriam, in the Walk to Defeat ALS at Eisenhower Park later this month.
Wurtzel’s Mother, Miriam Hanania, also a Plainview resident, succumbed to the disease two years ago after a long struggle. The disease forced her to go from an active, vibrant person to being wheelchair-bound and dependent on others for her care.
ALS or Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis is commonly known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease.
