Dorian De Long was one of our first volunteer coordinators. He was an incredible friend, wonderful father, fabulous Girl Scout volunteer, and an amazing teacher and advocate for public education. Shawna was lucky to meet him when she started a Girl Scout troop in kindergarten and their daughter joined through mutual friends. He was just one of those friends you never forget and forever cherish.
If you can this event in his honor, tomorrow, or make a donation for their scholarship program, we’d sure appreciate your support!
