Girl Scouts of Maine to host statewide Girls’ Night Out

SOUTH PORTLAND — Girl Scouts of Maine will host Girls Night Out for potential members and volunteers at various locations in the month of September as part of a new recruitment initiative.

These drop-in events, hosted around the state, will bring together girls from kindergarten through fifth grade and their parents, 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.

“Girl Scouts helps girls develop their full potential,” 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.”

Girls’ Night Out events are just some of the many recruitment events that Girl Scouts of Maine will be holding this fall. It will also be showcasing the new sign-up technology at all its recruitment events, as it is now easier than ever to sign up for Girl Scouts and for members to find a troop in their area.

Girls’ Night Out will be held in the following locations from 5:30-7:30 p.m.:

Sept. 9
Gardiner — Christ Episcopal Church

Sept. 16
Brunswick — Harriet Beecher Stowe School

Sept. 23
Belfast — Troy Howard Middle School
