Join the Girl Scouts – or lead them! “Info nights” this week

(WSB photo from February 2009)
Girl Scouts are about more than cookies (although that part is fun too)! Ilana Barnes from Girl Scouts of Western Washington sends word of two information nights in West Seattle tonight and tomorrow, not just for the girls, but for prospective leaders too:

* *Who*: All girls and adults interested in learning more about Girl Scouts!

*Attention all girls everywhere*…Do you want to share and explore new things with your friends? Sing and make s’mores around the campfire? Build a rocket? Go horseback riding? Ever wondered what it would be like to grow up and be a veterinarian, baker, scientist, banker, or artist – you can learn, try, and experience all these things in the Girl Scouts. If you can think it, you can do it! It’s all about what YOU like!

*Attention all parents, guardians and adults who believe the girl in their life is amazing*…You can help her reach her full potential. Help her explore her passions, find courage, and build character so she can make the world a better place. You can help by getting involved in Girl Scouts!

The Girl Scouts of Western Washington is 99% volunteer-led and we need caring adults like yourself to take an active role in giving girls the best possible Girl Scout experience. We are looking for enthusiastic adult volunteers who are interested in bringing Girl Scouts to their Seattle community. Each year Girl Scouts has many more girls interested in joining than we are able to place in troops. Come learn how you can help!

    I hit the ATM at the grocery store on Sunday so I could buy popcorn from the Boy Scout outside. When I asked him to describe his products he replied “Well, it’s all pretty expensive.”

    What a sales technique!

    I think if the girlscouts had a low fat alternative they would sell

    Assuming you mean that seriously – actually, they do.
    Or at least “reduced fat.”
    PS – Talked with the Scouts. They DESPERATELY need volunteers to serve as leaders. These info sessions are for that purpose as much as recruiting more scouts. So ANYONE thinking about it – GO!

    I am so pleased to say that my granddaughter and her mommy are newly involved in Girl Scouts. It is so worthwhile for all involved.

Sorry, comment time is over.
