Local Girl Scout Organization in Need of VolunteersThe Girl Scouts of Southern Illinois are in need of community members who are willing to volunteer as leaders, co-leaders, presenters, and general helpers for the East Marion Service Unit, serving the school districts of Salem, Selmaville, Iuka, Kell, Odin, Raccoon, Patoka, and South Central.
The regional Girl Scout Organization is experiencing a shortage of leaders, and will provide training and support for anyone interested. Leaders can be anyone of any education level, male or female, over the age of 18.
Girl Scout Volunteer Cyndi Addison explained the current need for leaders.
"We usually recruit leaders from the parents" Addison explained, "But a lot of times, parents of that age level are too busy to be leaders."
The Girl Scouts will hold registration on Thursday, August 29th between 5:30 and 7:00pm at the First Baptist Church at 721 W. Main in Salem. Cost for registration is $15, however financial assistance is available. A parent or guardian must attend to complete the registration forms. During registration there will be a variety of events, including face painting and an ice cream social. Anyone with questions is urged to contact Membership Development Coordinator Vanessa Worthington at 800-345-6858.
