Girl Scouts is looking for new members
September 10, 2013
Girl Scouts are inviting potential new members to attend informational meetings at elementary schools throughout September to learn more about getting started.
The meeting schedule is: Sept. 19 at Newcastle Elementary; Sept. 23 at Issaquah Valley Elementary; Sept. 25 at Maple Hills Elementary; and Sept. 26 at Sunset Elementary. An additional meeting will take place at Apollo Elementary, but a date and time haven’t yet been selected.
All meetings will take place from 7-8 p.m. in the respective school’s multipurpose room or gym.
Girl Scouts, the world’s largest volunteer organization for girls, is open to ages 5-18. Kindergarten and first-graders are placed in the Daisies program; second- and third-graders in Brownies; fourth- and fifth-graders in Juniors; and sixth- through 12th-graders in the Cadet, Senior and Ambassador programs.
National dues are $15 per year and each troop sets its own monthly dues of $5 or less per month. No girls are denied membership because of financial hardship.
