Claremont woman honored for Girl Scout volunteering


Tara Tilton received council Appreciation Pin

CLAREMONT, NH – Tara Tilton, 47, of Claremont, was awarded the Appreciation Pin by Girl Scouts of the Green and White Mountains at the Girl Expo on Oct. 16.  

Tilton has been a troop leader in her community for many years and maintains a large troop open to girls in grades K-9. The troop has a robust volunteer system with Tilton supporting volunteers who lead girls in patrols at each grade level. The troop is active and very involved in their community, and they are extremely active and are leaders in the cookie program every year. This involvement has allowed them to fully fund individual and family activities, including trips to the Rocking Horse Ranch two years in a row, where girls have had amazing bonding and travel experiences that may not otherwise have been available to them.

Tilton has been extensively involved in recruitment events in her community, often picking up additional recruiting opportunities to help support council staff. She also serves as the community liaison and community product sales coordinator providing a valuable local point of contact for all things Girl Scout.

In addition to supporting her community team members, Tara has involved the neighboring community in events, often volunteering to support them when those towns or communities are unable to get volunteers.

The Appreciation Pin recognizes adults who have performed beyond the expectations of their position and have supported the council’s goals in one or more of the council’s geographic areas. Appreciation Pin nominations are approved by the Adult Recognitions Task Group and the council’s Board of Directors.

Girl Scouts of the Green and White Mountains greatly appreciates the contributions Tilton and all its volunteers make every day.
