Girl Scouts Recruitment Event, August 20, 6:30-7:30 p.m. at Elgin City Park

Girl Scouts Spirit of Nebraska will hold a Girl Scout Recruitment Event for Elgin girls at City Park on August 20. The event begins at 6:30 p.m. Local girls and their families are invited to come, make new friends and sign up for Girl Scouts. Currently, there are 22 active Girl Scouts in the area.

Girl Scouts is available to all girls, grades K-12, and can be customized to complement all the activities in their lives. As girls get older there are several ways to enjoy Girl Scouting. These options are called “pathways” and girls can choose one, some or all of these to fit their lives. Younger girls begin their Girl Scout experience in troops and then progress to the pathways which are: camp, events, series, travel, troops and virtual. These pathways make their Girl Scout experience flexible and easy to incorporate into their other activities. Regardless of their schedule, there is time to do it all.

“I feel spending quality time with children is the most important thing I can do,” said Amber Grimm, Norfolk Girl Scout Leader. “I want the girls to know how important it is to give back to others.”

Girl Scouts is a value-based organization that helps girls build strong interpersonal skills, independence, leadership and a sense of responsibility. For more information please contact Jenny Rooks, 402-843-6243, or Ann Beckman, 402-843-5764.
