YORK COUNTY — Girl Scouts of Maine will be hosting Discover Girl Scout events for potential members at a number of locations in York County later this month.

These events will bring together girls from kindergarten through third grade and their caregivers, and allow them to discover why Girl Scouting is important to the development of girls, how it relates to the success of young women today, and the important role that adults play.

“Girl Scouts helps girls develop their full potential,” says Joanne Crepeau, CEO of Girl Scouts of Maine. “When a girl becomes a Girl Scout, she grows into a young woman who is self-confident, strong and compassionate. She learns how to build and maintain healthy relationships. She becomes more aware of the world around her and uses her skills and talents to make her world a better place.”

Girl Scouts of Maine builds girls of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place. GSME provides services and support to nearly 13,000 girl and adult members statewide, and operates service centers and shops in South Portland and Bangor.

Upcoming Discover Girl Scout will be held at the following locations:

• Buxton Center Elementary School, Buxton, 6 p.m., Jan. 15

• Governor John Fairfield School, Saco, 6 p.m., Jan. 16

• Hollis Elementary School, Hollis, 6 p.m., Jan. 17
