Girls Scouts are still going strong in Kewaunee County. Kathy Welty, the membership engagement coordinator at the Girls Scouts of the Northwestern Great Lakes, says the Girl Scout numbers have been steady the past few years. She says Girl Scouting helps develop leadership skills for girls from kindergarten to seniors in high school.
Welty says that the Girls Scouts is a volunteer-led organization with the volunteers being the heart of the program. The membership year begins October 1 and dues are $30 per year for girls and $25 for adults. Financial assistance is offered to girls who need it. Informational meetings are scheduled for 6 pm in the Luxemburg-Casco Primary School tonight and 6 pm at Kewaunee Elementary School this Wednesday. Algoma held a successful meeting last week with 13 new members joining, according to Welty. You can find contact information on the Girls Scouts programs in the area with this story online.
