Girls invited to Girl Scout Day on March 15 in Napoleonville
Girl Scouts Louisiana East is hosting a Girl Scout Day in Assumption Parish for girls of all ages in celebration of its 102nd birthday. Free and open to the public, Girl Scout Day will be on Saturday, March 15, from 9.a.m. to12 p.m. at the Napoleonville Middle School gymnasium at 4847 Highway 1 in Napoleonville, and is an opportunity for families to learn more about the Girl Scout Leadership Experience, while girls in kindergarten through 12th grade, enjoy demonstrations, face painting, prizes, and other fun, hands-on activities.
“Girl Scout Week is March 9-16 this year, and we wanted to introduce girls to some of the fun things we do in Girl Scouting, and hopefully find some leaders to head up troops here in Assumption Parish,” said Membership Executive Laurey Jones.
Just a few of the day’s activities include Entergy’s Arcs and Sparks demonstration, STEM and agricultural activities with representatives from the LSU Ag Center, as well as Girl Scout songs and games. One lucky participant will win a case of Girl Scout Thin Mint Cookies, and refreshments will also be provided, compliments of the local Pizza Hut and Raising Cane’s. While the event is free to attend, non-perishable food donations are being accepted at the event for the Assumption Parish Council on Aging’s food bank.
The mission of Girl Scouts is to build girls of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place. In partnership with caring adult volunteers, girls develop leadership skills as they discover new interests, connect with others, and take action on issues that are important to them. Membership is $15 per year for girls and adults, making it a positive and affordable option for today’s busy families. Some favorite areas of interest for girls and adults include camping, travel, health and fitness, the arts, science and technology, cookie-selling, and much more.
