SOUTH PORTLAND — Girl Scouts of Maine has announced that it will host free Sprouting Daisies events for girls who are entering kindergarten or first grade and their families.

Sprouting Daisies will bring together girls and their caregivers, and allow them to discover why Girl Scouting is important to the development of girls, how it relates to the success of young women today, and the important role that adults play.

Attendees will be invited to participate in an activity, as well as learn about volunteer opportunities and how to earn GSME’s newest patch, Sprouting Daisies, for free.

“Girl Scouts helps girls develop their full potential, even the youngest ones,” said Joanne Crepeau, CEO of Girl Scouts of Maine. “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.”

GSME will hold the following area Sprouting Daisies events:

• June 20, Lewiston Public Library, Lewiston, 5 p.m.
