SOUTH PORTLAND — Girl Scouts of Maine has announced that it will host Girls Night Out for potential members and volunteers at various locations in the month of September as a part of a new recruitment initiative.

These drop-in events, hosted around the state, will bring together girls from kindergarten through fifth grade, along with their parents, to allow them to discover why being in the Girl Scouts is important to their development, how it relates to the success of young women today and the important role that adults play.

“Girl Scouts helps girls develop their full potential,” Girl Scouts of Maine CEO Joanne Crepeau said. “When a girl becomes a Girl Scout, she grows into a young woman who is self-confident, strong and compassionate. She learns how to build and maintain healthy relationships. She becomes more aware of the world around her and uses her skills and talents to make her world a better place.”

Girls Night Out events are just some of the many recruitment events that GSME will be holding this fall. GSME will also be showcasing the new signup technology at all of its recruitment events, as it is now easier than ever to sign up for Girl Scouts and for members to find a troop in their area.

GSME is holding Girls Night Out from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Friday, Sept. 23, at the following locations:

• University of Maine at Farmington, Farmington; 

• U.S. Army National Guard, Lewiston; and

• Dirigo Elementary School, Peru.
