Girl Scouts Want Recruits

One local woman is hoping to inspire young girls like she was over a half a century ago, by joining the Girl Scouts of America. Jean Harm of Sheridan says being a Girl Scout still has meaning today, like it did when she joined those many years ago, simply because of the wonderful skills that can be learned.

She plans to pass on her passion for the scouts this weekend during a recruiting outing at the McDonald's on North Main Street in Sheridan. The event runs from 11-2 and is open to girls from kindergarten on up. You're never too old, she says, because they need
mentors.

The cost to join is $15 for the year and each new scout will receive a free ice-cream, on Saturday, courtesy of the fast-food restaurant. The Girl Scout clubs are still broken down into troops, she said, as per age, and range from Daisies, Brownies, Juniors, Cadets, Seniors and Ambassadors. Right now, she said, there are 12 troops in Sheridan County, and about 51 Girl Scouts in Sheridan, alone.

Harm can be reached by phone for more information at 307-672-3611.
