Cook County Girl Scouts kicks off the scouting year today!


A kick-off event is being held today, Thursday, September 12, for Cook County Girl Scouts—members of the Girl Scouts Minnesota - Wisconsin Lakes & Pines Council. Girls in 1st through 5th grades are encouraged to attend to find out more about scouting.
Girls at Sawtooth Elementary and Great Expectations School will be met at classrooms by Girl Scout leaders and can walk to the kick-off at the Evangelical Free Church in Grand Marais with friends. Other interested girls can meet their fellow Scouts at the Free Church.
The first meeting includes all Cook County Scouts and is an informal chance just to meet one another and get reacquainted—and to learn a little bit about scouting. Girls of all ages are welcome—come out and find out if you are a Daisy, a Brownie, a Junior or a Cadet Scout.
There will be treats, songs, a simple activity and the opportunity to become a Girl Scout! If your girl misses the kick-off, but is interested in scouting, don’t worry, it’s not too late! A troop leader would be happy to talk to you. Contact Rhonda Silence at (218) 387-9844 for information.
Leaders are still needed for Cook County troops. Unfortunately there is no kindergarten Daisy group this year because of lack of a leader—if you are interested and would like to learn more about becoming a leader or just want information on how your girl can become a Scout, contact Rhonda Silence or Arvis Thompson at (218) 370-1105.
