CLARENDON HILLS – Girl Scouts of all ages regularly receive awards and badges that recognize accomplishments and proficiency for learning new skills.
Each spring, however, Girl Scouts of Greater Chicago and Northwest Indiana honors hundreds of adult volunteers whose dedication enables girls to achieve success.
Kathleen Cappetta of Clarendon Hills was recently honored at this year's ceremony for 25 years of service to the Girl Scouts.
This year, during four recognition ceremonies, volunteers received special honors from Girl Scouts of the USA and the local council and were recognized for their individual years of service, which together added up to more than 22,456 years of service.
