Girl Scouts recruit girls in Region 8

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT)- Always in attempt to make the world a better place, some girl scout recruiters set out Saturday to find more girls wanting to be involved.  Saturday morning at the Joe Mack Campbell Park in Jonesboro, girls of all ages came out to register and also enjoy a few activities including walking a rope bridge and archery. 

 The program 'builds girls of courage, confidence and character who make the world a better place'. Organizers say they love the fact that the girls love giving back to the community. "We love all of our girls and we want everyone in town to be involved" says Jenny Sims, Event Coordinator. Sims says "I love to see the girls faces, their smiling and having a good time. It's just we give a lot to our community and they really love it and really enjoy it and so do I".

Face painting, making girl scout bracelets and more activities were also on hand to enjoy. Organizers say nearly 110 girls registered at the event.
