Girl Scouts is for every girl in grades K through 12. It is a fun way to make new friends, share outdoor adventures, check out future careers, explore science and technology, run a cookie business and develop leadership skills.

As the largest girl network in the country, Girl Scouts empowers girls to become confident, courageous and thoughtful leaders who take action to make the world a better place.

All kinds of opportunities exist in Girl Scouting. The troops in Spring Grove had an opportunity this summer to learn about the sport of tennis during a USTA Northern Girl Scout Tennis Play Day.

A certified instructor from Rochester taught them the basics of tennis, awarded prizes and brought a Wimbledon style snack of strawberries and cream for the girls to enjoy.

They earned the tennis ace award badge for participating and had a blast learning about a new sport.

If your daughter, granddaughter, or any girl you may know in grades K-12 would like to experience all that Girl Scouts has to offer, have them come to the Spring Grove Girl Scouts end-of-the-year ceremonies to see what is all about.

There will be registration for the upcoming year for any girl who is interested.

Come to the Trinity Lutheran Church Fellowship Hall, 203 E. Main St., on Wednesday, Sept. 12 from 7 to 8 p.m.
