EVENT COMING SOON TO MARION!

Save the date to make new friends!  Join Girl Scouts of Southern Illinois for a unique casual networking series hosted by GSSI Alumnae honoring regional women of distinction who embody the Girl Scout mission. Reconnect with your Girl Scout sisters, or introduce a newcomer to the leadership experience of Girl Scouts. We are creating a space to share delectable libations and clever conversations promoting courage, confidence and character. Join us in celebration!

GSSI will host four events within our service area of 40.5 counties in Southern Illinois to ensure every girl and woman has a place to share the memories and successes of Girl Scouting. This invitation is open to all members of the community. Learn about the bright future of Girl Scouting and discuss how we can empower girls to become powerful community builders. Be a part of the conversation. Share your leadership story and hear the powerful stories of the women we honor.

Even if you can’t make it, there are a number of ways to support the over 11,300 girls and 4,550 adult volunteers Girl Scouts of Southern Illinois serves every day. Click here to make a donation today.
