Lynette Robbins, Girl Scouts of Montana and Wyoming Program Specialsit, is seen with participants of the 2011 Girls Golf program, held annually in Great Falls. After 28 years of working with youth and the Girl Scouts, Lynette is retiring from the organization in October.

Join Girl Scouts of Montana and Wyoming in celebration of the 28-year Girl Scout career of Lynette Robbins at an Open House and Retirement Party on Tuesday, September 20.

The public is invited to attend the celebration from noon – 2 p.m. at the Great Falls Service Center, 4930 Ninth Avenue South. Come meet the Great Falls staff, learn more about the new Girl Scout Leadership Experience, and discover the fun, friendship and power of Girl Scouting. Light refreshments will be served.

In her extensive time serving the Girl Scouts, Lynette has helped build countless girls of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place. As a staff member specializing in Girl Scout program, Lynette has overseen many events and collaborations throughout the state of Montana focused on the Girl Scout leadership experience, including implementing the hugely successful Girls Golf program in the Great Falls area for which she received a $25,000 grant from the United States Golf Association.

Of the opportunity to channel her passion for volunteerism, working with youth, and the game of golf, Lynette said, “If you’re fortunate in life, you’ll have the opportunity to work at a job you love, and that will make all the difference in life.”

In addition to her work as a staff member of Girl Scouts, Lynette served as a National Board member of the Association of Girl Scout Executive Staff and has been recognized throughout her career for her dedication to the Girl Scout mission. In 2008, Lynette was presented with the Highest Award in adult Girl Scouts, the Thanks Badge and was inducted into the National Association of Girl Scout Executive Staff Hall of Fame, located in Indianapolis, Indiana, in November 2008.

Lynette has also been selected as the YWCA’s 2011 Volunteer and Community Service Honoree, and will be recognized at the 21st annual YWCA Salute to Women on Saturday, September 17 at the Great Falls Airport Convention Center. Each year, the YWCA recognizes women for the work they do in their communities, and Lynette was one of seven women chosen this year for the honor.

“My younger sister from Vancouver is flying in for the award and will be attending with my husband Rick and his son Ryan. I am so honored to be given this award,” Lynette said,
