Are you interested in finding leadership for your daughter? Does team-building, belonging to a sisterhood and developing lifelong skills sound appealing? Then you should bring your daughter to the Troy R-3 Girl Scouts of Eastern Missouri Recruitment Event.

Girl Scouting in Eastern Missouri began in 1918 and for the past century this girl-led, girl-centered organization has helped develop G.I.R.L.s (Go-getters, Innovators, Risk-takers and Leaders). Half of all U.S. businesswomen, 75 percent of female senators, and most of the 40 women who have flown in space were Girl Scouts.

Every girl has greatness inside her; Girl Scouts helps her finds it. What are Girl Scouts doing? Building girls of courage, confidence and character. Our girls improve our communities though service. Gain life skills while learning teamwork and what it means to be part of a sisterhood. Girl Scout Troops have once-in-a-lifetime experiences. Girl Scouting offers girls the opportunity to go camping, zip line from a climbing wall, learn archery, go horseback riding, develop sales skills, plan and lead events, compete in robotics, travel around the world and so much more.

Girl Scouts serves more than 50,000 girls. One of the most important skills we teach girls is leadership. Community leaders are invited to share their leadership knowledge with future generations. The girls then learn by doing, leading younger Girl Scouts in a variety of activities.

As Girl Scouts, girls join almost three million girls nationwide, exploring and discovering their world, connecting with others and taking action to make their world a better place. 

Girls in grades K-12 can join by accepting the Girl Scout Promise and Law and paying annual membership dues. Scholarships for the membership dues are available.

The Lincoln County Girl Scouts participate in various community service projects-sorting can goods for food pantries, holding an April Showers Drive for personal care items for those in need, collecting school supplies, volunteering at an animal shelter, picking up trash at some of our local parks and supporting the foster care program.

The recruitment event for Troy will be Tuesday Aug. 27; Kindergarten at 6:30 p.m., second grade through high school at 7:30 p.m., at the Lincoln County Health Department. Elsberry, Silex and Winfield recruitment dates and times to be decided.
