"Parents Night Out" - Dec 7


Girl Scout troop 80637, comprised of High School aged girls, is pleased to announce “Parents Night Out”; an opportunity for parents to leave their children with the Girl Scouts on Friday, December 7 2012 from 6pm to 10pm at the Franklin VFW on Pond Street. The children will be entertained with holiday themed activities such as crafts, games and snacks. Many of the troop members are certified babysitters and CPR/first aid trained adult supervision will also be present. Boys and girls who are potty trained through elementary age are welcome. The cost per child is $20. Space is limited. To pre-register, email the ages and names of children, along with the parent contact information to troop80637@gmail.com.

Girl Scout troop 80637 is raising funds to cover expenses incurred for troop activities and for costs associated with girls who are earning their Gold Award. The Girl Scout Gold Award is the highest award Girl Scout Seniors (grades 9-10) and Ambassadors (grades 11-12) can earn. The award is designed to be completed by an individual girl who completes two Senior or Ambassador journeys or completes one Senior or Ambassador journey and has earned a Girl Scout Silver Award. Once the prerequisites are completed, the Girl Scout will plan and perform an individual take action project relating to an issue that she cares about. The completion of the project will make a lasting difference in the local community, region, or beyond.

Girl Scouts is a value-based organization that helps girls build strong interpersonal skills, independence, and a sense of responsibility.
