Once a Girl Scout, Always a Girl Scout
San Jacinto Council launches alumnae program

HOUSTON (July 11, 2008) – Since 1912, more than 50 million women have been positively influenced by their Girl Scout experiences. Girl Scouts of San Jacinto Council would like to reconnect with undiscovered alumnae, and reintroduce them to the mission of the Girl Scouts. The vision is to provide opportunities for alumnae to gather and reconnect with like-minded women and men who hold dear the beliefs and values of the Girl Scouts.

Alumnae can utilize the Girl Scouts for social and networking opportunities. Girls can make a difference and seek out meaningful careers and volunteer opportunities inspired by what alumnae have accomplished.

  • Friday, July 25, alumnae will be visiting Girl Scout camps Agnes Arnold and Misty Meadows for a camp visit and picnic. Guests will enjoy BBQ, veggies and sweets.
  • Thursday, Oct. 23, there will be a social at the Girl Scouts of San Jacinto Council Program Place for Girls, 3000 Southwest Freeway. Attendees will have a chance to visit over cocktails and snacks.
  • Thursday, Jan. 15 - Monday, Jan. 19, join Girl Scouts from across the Lone Star state on a four-day cruise to Cozumel, Mexico.
