Jericho woman honored for Girl Scout volunteering


Pamela Gude receives council Thanks Badge

JERICHO, VT – Pamela Gude, 57, of Jericho was honored with the Thanks Badge by Girl Scouts of the Green and White Mountains on Sept. 10.

Gude, who goes by the Girl Scout camp nickname “Flask,” has been an integral part of the Girl Scout outdoor experience for over five years as an enthusiastic and knowledgeable volunteer. Not only does she go above and beyond to help with outdoor specific programs in her home region of Richmond and Bolton, but she has taken part in events, trainings and camps throughout the council, including all of the council’s camp properties.  “Gude not only delivers fantastic in-person programs, but also speaks about Girl Scouting to anyone who would benefit, including recruiting new volunteers to our efforts,” said Karyn Martin, director of program and properties at the council. “Flask supports troops as their outdoor expert, allowing many girls to get outside when they otherwise may not be able to. Her leadership of Twin Hills this past summer further advanced our outdoor programming goals and reach.”

The presentation was made to Gude at an awards ceremony at Camp Farnsworth during the council’s gathering for alums, Farnsworth Weekend.

The Thanks Badge recognizes adults whose service has benefitted the entire council, and is so significantly above and beyond expectations that no other award would be appropriate. Thanks Badge nominations are approved by the Adult Recognitions Task Group and the GSGWM Board of Directors.

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