  1. My name is Kathryn Woods and I am the Service Unit Manager for the Baldwinsville area Girl Scouts. I am also the daughter of the interim pastor at Trinity Episcopal church in Seneca Falls. I will be bringing a group of girls from Baldwinsville (about 150) to Seneca Falls on November 11, 2017 to complete the Suffrage Badge that was unveiled by the New York Girl Scouts and Lt. Governor Hochel. We are using Trinity as our home base and have lots of activities scheduled through out the day that include visits to the museums and the Stanton home. We would love to be able to make your church a stop on our visits since it is an important part of the Alice Paul story. If this is something we could do please let me know. I would love to bring the girls in small groups to view the pulpit.

    Kathryn Woods
