IOWA CITY– While many are gearing up for the new school year in Iowa City and the surrounding area, Girl Scouts also is gearing up for a new membership year and is inviting girls to join the organization.
Girl Scouts is the premier leadership development program for girls ages 5-17. Dues are only $1 a month, providing real value when other programs for girls cost much more.
Girl Scouts will be attending ice cream socials and open houses at area schools in the coming week. Information about the organization will be available at tables set up at the events. Girls and their parents or guardians can ask questions about Girl Scouts and sign up for school troop activity during these events.
Here is a list of schools events that Girl Scouts of Eastern Iowa and Western Illinois will be attending:
• Wednesday, Aug. 19: Hills, 6-7 p.m.; Regina, 1:30-3 p.m.
• Friday, Aug. 21: Willowwind, time to be determined.
• Monday, Aug. 24: Heritage Christian, 5:30-8 p.m.
