Once A Scout- Always A Scout!

One Pennsylvania Girl Scout is the epitome of “once you’re a scout, you’re always a scout,” as she has spent 88 years serving with them! 

At the age of 98, Veronica “Ronnie” Backenstoe still wears her green beret and even sells Girl Scout cookies! She joined the Girl Scouts back in 1931!

Though Backenstoe has countless fond memories from her over the years with Girl Scouts, she admitted that one of her most memorable experiences happened in 1965 when she was chosen to take a group of girls to Jamaica and her favorite  thing is selling Girl Scout cookies!
