Como Lake Girls Scouts looking for Daisy’s, leaders
Sunday October 7, 2012 | By:Metro Source Staff | News
LANCASTER- The Como Lake Service Unit of the Girl Scout of Western New York is holding two information sessions for girls in kindergarten or first grade who are interested in joining scouting and for anyone interested in becoming a leader.
The sessions will be held at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 9, at the Alden Branch Library, 13280 Broadway and 7 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 10, at the Lancaster Branch Library, 5466 Broadway.
“We have over 50 troops now, but unfortunately we just don’t have enough leaders to place all the girls on our waiting list, especially for the girls who are in kindergarten or first grade,” said Tina Preston, co-service unit manager for the Como Lake Service Unit. “We know how busy moms are now and have a strong support system in place to help our new leaders; all they need is a few hours a week and desire to make a difference in a girl’s life.”
Como Lake Service Unit serves the Lancaster, Depew, Alden area.
Topics being discussed at the sessions include; the scouting experience, becoming a leader, the forming of new troops and girl placement. Preston clarified that to be fair, girls are placed in troops in the order of date they contacted girl scouts with interest.
“If a parent chooses to start a troop then her daughter is automatically placed. This is one of the many benefits of becoming a leader,” Preston noted.
This year Girl Scouts celebrates its 100 year birthday. Scouting continues to provide opportunities for girls of all ages to build upon the skills they need to become the leaders of tomorrow. For more information contact: Preston at 818-1503 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
