Girl Scouts of Maine to host free Girl Scout events

Girl Scouts of Maine (GSME) announces that it will host free Sprouting Daisies events for girls who are entering kindergarten or first grade, and their families. Below is a list of events in your area.

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 today, and the important role that adults play. Attendees will be invited to participate in an activity, learn about volunteer opportunities, and learn how to earn GSME’s newest patch – Sprouting Daisies – for free.

“Girl Scouts helps girls develop their full potential, even the youngest ones,” says 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.”

These Sprouting Daisies events are just some of the many events that GSME will be holding this year. Here is a list of events in your area:

June 12, Carmel Elementary School, Carmel, 5:30 p.m.

June 21, Brewer Public Library, Brewer, 5:30 p.m.

June 29, Orono Public Library, Orono, 5:00 p.m.

Girl Scouts of Maine builds girls of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place. GSME provides services and support to over 12,000 girl and adult members statewide, and operates service centers and shops in South Portland and Bangor.
