Girl Scouts of Maine

SOUTH PORTLAND — The Girls Scouts of Maine are hosting several free events, including two in the Lakes Region, aimed at engaging girls entering kindergarten or first grade and their families in scouting. 

“Girl Scouts helps girls develop their full potential, even the youngest ones,” says 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.”

Known as “Sprouting Daisies” events, the programs will be in Raymond Feb. 26 at Raymond Elementary School and in New Gloucester March 1 at Memorial School. There will also be an event Feb. 28 at Oxford-Cumberland Canal School in Westbrook. 

Each of the events start at 6 p.m. and are free.
