Submitted by Cathy Pottschmidt and Nancy Hicks

A Girl Scout recruitment and registration event will be held in Central to give families the opportunity to learn more about the Girl Scout Leadership Experience, meet other adult volunteers, and/or register girls for placement in an available troop. Girls entering kindergarten through 12th grade from the Central school district and other area schools and churches, their parents/guardians, and other adults interested in volunteering are invited to attend the event on Saturday, September 11 at 9:30 a.m. – 12 p.m., Central Branch Library, 11260 Joor Road, to learn more about the Girl Scout program and adult Girl Scout volunteer opportunities.
The mission of Girl Scouts is to build girls of courage, confidence, and character who make the world a better place. In partnership with caring adult volunteers, girls develop leadership skills as they discover new interests, connect with others, and take action on issues that are important to them.  Membership is $12 per year for girls and adults, making it a positive and affordable option for today’s busy families.  Some favorite areas of interest for girls and adults include camping, health and fitness, the arts, science and technology, travel, cookie-selling, and much more.
The Girl Scout program levels are Girl Scout Daisies, kindergarten – 1st grade; Girl Scout Brownies, grades 2-3; Girl Scout Juniors, grades 4-5; Girl Scout Cadettes, grades 6-8; Girl Scout Seniors, grades 9-10; and Girl Scout Ambassadors, grades 11-12.  For more information about registering your daughter in Girl Scouts or adult volunteer opportunities in Girl Scouting, contact Membership Executive Linda Hannah at 225-279-1075 or LHannah@gsle.org. You may also contact Nancy Hicks at 261-1599.
