Girls Scouts Willow Service Unit, covering Greenwood, Mansfield, Hartford, and Hackett is a new member of the Greenwood Chamber of Commerce. The ribbon cutting ceremony was held last Thursday at the gazebo in Veteran’s Memorial Park. Girl Scouts – Diamonds of Arkansas, Oklahoma and Texas serves over 9,000 girls and 3,700 volunteers.

In Girl Scouts, girls discover the fun, friendship, and power of girls together. Through a myriad of enriching experiences, such as extraordinary field trips, sports skill-building clinics, community service projects, cultural exchanges, and environmental stewardships, girls grow courageous and strong. Girl Scouting helps girls develop their full individual potential; relate to others with increasing understanding, skill, and respect; develop values to guide their actions and provide the foundation for sound decision-making; and contribute to the improvement of society through their abilities, leadership skills, and cooperation with others.

If you want more information about girl scouts, Willow Service Unit will be hosting Back to School Bash on Saturday, September 28th 2:00 -4:30 p.m. at Greenwood United Methodist Church 10 W. Denver Street. This event is completely FREE! We are inviting girls in Grades K through 12 to come out and enjoy fun activities while learning all about what Girl Scouts has to offer.
