Girl Scouts Troop #41127 has been formed to serve girls who have unique needs in the Issaquah, Sammamish and Snoqualmie Valley areas.

The Girl Scouts organization builds girls of courage, confidence and character who make the world a better place. The troop is open to all girls age 5-18, regardless of ability.

Troop leaders have, and work with, children who have varied abilities. Activities will be designed to ensure that every girl can participate at her pace in a setting with peers and other adults who “get it.” Troop meetings will occur twice per month.

Mark your calendars for the troop’s informational meeting on Sunday, Feb. 11, from 4:30 to 6 p.m. at the Snoqualmie Valley YMCA, located at 35018 SE Ridge Street. Snoqualmie WA 98065. Sign-up in advance is not required.
