Are You Scout Ready?

Are You Scout Ready?

School is back in swing, and with it, all the after school activities that our children enjoy partaking in!  So that begs the question, are you Scout Ready?

After all, it’s not only soccer you want to sign your kids up for, but other great extracurriculars that promote character building, friendships and giving back to the community — like Girl Scouts.

Fun Fact, your Hampton Roads Moms Founders, Jessica and Ashley are former Girl Scouts.  And we can personally attest that there are many advantages to being a Girl Scout, not limited to getting involved in your community and making lasting friendships!

And if you haven’t signed your daughter up for Girl Scouts yet, no worry!  There’s still time.

On Saturday, September 23rd from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., you can “join” the Girl Scouts of the Colonial Coast at the Girl Scouts Sign Up Event taking place at the Patrick Henry Mall in Newport News and Pembroke Mall in Virginia Beach.

Not only will you have the opportunity to sign up to join your local troop, but you can learn how to “Be Prepared” at home and school.

There will be activities at the event that highlight bike safety, crime prevention, home security, first aid and school safety, all of which are valuable tools even if you don’t plan on enrolling your child in Girl Scouts.

These activities will all be interactive and featured alongside crafts and the opportunity to play games. And there will also be over 25 exhibits from local vendors, including Hampton Roads Moms!

And if you go to the Sign Up Event at Pembroke Mall, you’ll have the opportunity to meet WAVY TV 10 Meteorologist Deitra Tate.

To find out more, check out the Girl Scouts of the Colonial Coast website and Facebook.

And if you would like to participate, currently registered Girl Scouts can host a booth. Be sure to contact Kim Lincoln for details.
