South Lafourche Girl Scouts hosting two recruitment events

South Lafourche Girl Scouts hosting two recruitment events

Girl Scouts in South Lafourche are holding two recruitment events this month to invite more girls to join Girl Scouting.

The first recruitment event is Saturday, August 22, from 10 a.m. to 12-noon at the South Lafourche Library, 16241 East Main St., Cut Off.

The second recruitment event is Thursday, August 27 from 4:30 to 7 p.m. at the Lockport Library, 720 Crescent Ave., Lockport.

Each event is an opportunity for families to learn more about the Girl Scout Leadership Experience and to register their daughters in Girl Scouts, as well as for adults who are interested in volunteering with Girl Scouts.

The mission of Girl Scouting 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 $15 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.

More information about the Girl Scout Leadership Experience is available at www.gsle.org.

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 Cadet’s, grades 6-8; Girl Scout Seniors, grades 9-10; and Girl Scout Ambassadors, grades 11-12. No girl is denied membership for financial reasons.

For more information about the recruitment events, contact volunteer Carol Atkinson at 985-798-7772 or Girl Scout Membership Executive DeNeil Brown at 985-381-2688 or dmbrown@gsle.org.
