RICHMOND, Va. — Gloria Lucas has dedicated her life to the Girl Scouts. Now the 81-year-old former scout leader is a lifetime member of the organization.
Reporter Maggi Marshall featured Lucas in a recent story on the impact Lucas and Girl Scout partner Catherine Perrin have made on the community.
Marshall returned to Lucas' home with a surprise in an envelope.
"I want you to open this," Maggi said as she handed Lucas the envelope.
"Oh, this is a picture of the [Girl Scout ceremony at the park]," Lucas said.
"No," Maggi replied.
Lucas opened the envelope and pulled out a lifetime membership certificate.
She let out a gleeful yell, grabbed Maggi's hand, and led her in a rendition of the Girl Scout camp song "Buddies and Pals."
