Girl Scouts to host free events

Girl Scouts of Maine will host free Sprouting Daisies events for girls who are entering kindergarten or first grade, and their families, including an event at 5:30 p.m. Monday, May 22 at Girl Scouts of Maine Service Center, South Portland.

Sprouting Daisies will bring together girls and their caregivers, and allow them to discover why Girl Scouting is important to the development of girls, how it relates to the success of young women and the role that adults play. Attendees will be invited to participate in an activity, learn about volunteer opportunities, and learn how to earn Girl Scouts of Maine’s newest patch – Sprouting Daisies – for free.

“Girl Scouts helps girls develop their full potential, even the youngest ones,” said Joanne Crepeau, CEO of Girl Scouts of Maine. “When a girl becomes a Girl Scout, she grows into a young woman who is self-confident, strong and compassionate. She learns how to build and maintain healthy relationships. She becomes more aware of the world around her and uses her skills and talents to make her world a better place.”
