The Oak Ridge Girl Scouts service unit, in cooperation with the Oak Ridge Sister City Support Organization, will be hosting a group of 12 girls and leaders from our sister city of Naka-shi, Japan. Current Girl Scouts and girls interested in joining a Girl Scouts troop are invited to come meet our Japanese sisters and help with a local Girl Scout service project.
On Thursday, July 31, the Japanese girls and their U.S. hostesses will be cleaning and dressing dolls for the Holiday Bureau’s “Dolls for Daisy” project. This meeting will be at the Oak Ridge Children’s library auditorium from 7:30-8:30 p.m. Girls are invited to come help with the dolls, welcome the Japanese Girl Scouts, and register for local troops for the upcoming school year.
