Girl Scout volunteer training planned

The Carlisle Girl Scouts will offer Girl Scout orientation and basic leadership training for adult volunteers on Wednesday, June 20, at 6:45 p.m. The meeting place will be announced at a later date. This program provides basic training for troop leaders and adults who volunteer with the Girl Scouts. For the first time, we can offer basic leadership training in Carlisle, so you can complete two training steps on June 20.

Why sign up? If you're a leader, cookie parent, or troop treasurer, this training is required by the Girl Scouts. If you assist a troop in other ways, your being trained allows the troop to be more versatile in scheduling meetings, trips, and activities. For any questions or to sign up, call Linda Fabrizio at 1-978-371-9029 or Cathy Galligan at 1-978-369-5003.
