Girl Scouts Recruiting New Members

Meridian, Miss. The Girl Scouts of Greater Mississippi were looking for some new recruits Thursday evening.

Members were signing up girls from across the area to participate in the organization. Girls can start scouting from kindergarten all the way up to the 12th grade. After the girls sign up, they are formed into troops and have meetings in their different counties.

"They just get a little mini-taste of what Girl Scouting is all about. They'll learn about camping. They'll learn about their age levels and things that they can do in a troop. We have different pathways to Girl Scouting," said Cantrell Keyes of the Girl Scouts of Greater Mississippi.

If you missed Thursday's signup session, another session will be held next Thursday from 6 P.M. to 8 P.M. at the EMEPA building on Highway 39 North.
