Good numbers turned out at the Lutheran Church hall Monday night for the Williamsburg Girl Guide’s official launch of their Cookie Campaign and an open house. “The girls will be taking their cookies home tonight,” said Sparks leader Melissa Ringler explaining that the combination Cookie Launch/ Open House was an effort for the Guide’s to get more exposure during a current Try Now. Join Later recruitment program. “I have seen four families here who aren’t part of our group, so that is very encouraging,” said Ringler. The Try Now. Join Later campaign encourages girls as young as five (Sparks) to give Guiding a try for the months of April, May and June without paying a membership fee. The Williamsburg groups meet every Monday night at the Lutheran Church in Williamsburg, where they work on crafts, play games and get involved in various activities. “The girls do a lot of their own planning for the things they want to do,” says Ringler. “We are a small group, but we have a great time.” Anyone interested in the Try Now. Join Later Girl Guides recruitment campaign can contact Ringler by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org. The local Guides groups will be out and about selling their cookies over the next couple of weeks. Pictured above, front l-r, are Brownie Maeryn Gilmour and Guide Hailey Guerin.
