Hi Connie
It was a great pleasure meeting you for the first time! What a nice way to learn about you and your advocacies. Many thanks for mentioning me in Day 4 of your blog... such a great privilege!
Your sister in scouting,

Connie, As You wrote about the Japanese attendees asking how to respond to questions about why GS remains an all girl organization, I was reminded of the World Conference in Manila. I and others watched you guide the assembly in the thought process that affirmed WAGGGS' commitment to remain a single sex organization. What a joy and a privilege it was to be there! Thank you.

Connie, thanks so much for the colorful description of this wonderful event. On this very rainey 4th of July, I was jotting down a few notes on messaging for recruitment of new members. Your blog was a reminder of the impact that we can have on girls and young women around the world--and the fun that we have being together. I continue to get excited as I hear about the many events going and the impact on girls. Thanks Connie for your Leadership.

Thank you, Pearl and Connie for helping us be a part of this event. The region is certainly a colourful, diverse, and growing one, and it is great to be able to share some of this triennial conference with those of us who are not there. Many thanks for your time and effort. And thanks, too to the organising team, and hosts, Girl Scouts of Japan. Ginny
