What do you enjoy about Girl Scouts? It will all be there at GIRLFEST!
Our first GIRLFEST in September 2008 brought more than 1,000 Girl Scouts together at Broadway Mall - and we're doing it again in 2009! Come kick off the new Girl Scout year with Girl Scouts of Nassau County!
All Girl Scouts ages 5 through 17 are invited to spend the afternoon exploring what it means to be a Girl Scout. Get a chance to preview the Fall Products and some information on the latest and greatest for Girl Scouts. Hey, it's your event, you decide what it's all about!
Congratulations to Robyn M., of Troop 3262, our 2009 patch design contest winner.
