Culver City Neighborhood Girl Scouts (CCNGS) invites all families with daughters interested in joining Girl Scouts to Recruitment Day this Sunday afternoon, Sept. 19 at Farragut Elementary School cafetorium. From 3 to 5 p.m., volunteers from CCNGS, the Culver City service unit of Girl Scouts of Greater Los Angeles, will tell girls and their parents what the 99-year-old Girl Scout movement is all about, register new scouts, and help families find spots in local troops or form new troops. Light refreshments will be served, and older Girl Scouts will provide activities for younger girls who attend Recruitment Day. Farragut Elementary is at 10820 Farragut Drive. Parking is available on the street and in a lot west of the school.
CCNGS is more than 200 girls strong. It welcomes new girls ages five to 17 (kindergarten to 12th grade) who live in Culver City and surrounding communities. In the 2010-2011 school year, Culver City troops will participate in day and overnight camping trips, a World Friendship Day
festival and food tasting, holiday caroling, museum “sleepovers,” a hat drive for people living with cancer and other activities. Individual scouts and troops can also participate in events, workshops, camps and projects around greater Los Angeles. Troops of all age levels also work
on skill- and knowledge-building badges and awards and perform community service throughout the year.
Girls who wish can also join Girl Scouts independently as “Juliettes” (scouts not affiliated with a troop).
Girl Scout of the USA embraces four program goals: for each girl to become the best person she can be, to learn to respect others, to build her own set of values and to build leadership skills.
