Lifelong Girl Scout Shares Experience With Denver Girl Scouts

Colorado's Denver Post reports that Rae Ann Dougherty, of Golden, was one of several women helping 35 Girl Scouts create worm-composting boxes and harvest vegetables at Ekar Farm in Denver for use at a local food bank.

Dougherty joined Girl Scouts when she was 7 and has served as an adult volunteer for 18 years. After moving around the country and working for three Fortune 100 companies, she is still a Girl Scout.

"I wouldn't be who I am without the Girl Scouts," she said, adding that being part of the organization taught her the value of hard work and diversity.

On Sunday morning, she hoped to pass along the Girl Scout ideals to a new generation of girls.
