Girl Scouts are holding two registration events in Walker and Denham Springs for girls in kindergarten through 12th grade.
Girls interested in joining a troop or adults thinking about volunteering can attend recruitment events from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. Oct. 27 at Walker City Hall, 10136 Florida Blvd., Walker, and from 10 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. Nov. 5 at The Way Church, 9270 Cockerham Road, Denham Springs.
In addition to Girl Scout troops, Girl Scouts offers other Pathways program for girls who may not be able to participate over a span of nine to 12 months or who are interested in certain themes or topics.
“In Girl Scouts, we recognize that girls have different interests, and as they grow older, they may wish to spend more time doing one particular activity, whether it’s participating in our Wrangler horseback riding program or a financial empowerment or science-related series of activities,” said Robin Guillmette, chief operations officer at Girl Scouts Louisiana East. “While joining a Girl Scout troop is still a tried and true approach to Girl Scouting, we want to attract girls who may wish to pick and choose from a menu of events and activities. The possibilities are endless.”
Membership is $15 per year for girls and adults. No girl is turned away for financial reasons.
