  • Grant County Girl Scouts need leaders

    It’s that time of year again, when the Daisies and Brownies go door to door selling their famous cookies. But they need more than people buying Girl Scout cookies; Grant County Girl Scouts are in need of troop leaders.

    Grant County currently has eight Girl Scout troops and about 100 girls on a waiting list to be in a troop. These girls cannot be the Girl Scout they want to be unless Grant County has 10 adults, 18 years or older, who want to volunteer to become troop leaders.
