Grayson County Girl Scouts are getting a strong start to the year with a parent/scout information session on Tuesday, Aug. 25.
The session will introduce the community to the new leadership of Grayson County Girl Scouts: Service Unit Leader Mona Fulkerson and troop leaders Jodie Hester, Cindy Paris, Joanie Powell, Deanna Lasley, and Missy Mudd.
“I love this! How things are changing in the county, it’s exciting,” said Powell.
“We’ve already hosted a successful yard sale this summer, and those funds will be used for activities for the girls,” Fulkerson said.
The local group is revitalizing the strong history of Girl Scouts in the county with plans to empower and encourage young girls. Parents can learn more about the organization from 6-7 p.m. Aug. 25 at Grayson County High School. Potential Girl Scouts can get an idea of activities scouts do in meetings and at the event.
Girls of all ages can get involved in Girl Scouts. Registration night will begin at 6 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 25 at Grayson County High School. Girls can get a taste of scouting at registration with activities geared toward Daisy, Brownie, and Junior levels. Mothers, fathers, grandparents, aunts, and uncles also are needed as volunteers to support the new troops that form. Volunteers will be provided training to help them prepare for their roles with the group after a background check.
Girl Scouts focuses on encouraging girls to become strong leaders, independent thinkers, courageous, and friendly through troop meetings and activities that explore the world around them.
