North Shore Girl Scouts shoud soon have access to more programs, better
volunteer training services and greater administrative resources as their
local council consolidates with a larger council serving the northwest
suburbs and much of Lake County.
The Illinois Shore Girl Scout Council - representing troops in Evanston,
Wilmette, Winnetka, Kenilworh, Northfield, Glencoe and part of Glenview -
and the larger Illinois Prairie Girl Scout Council agreed recently to
merge their organizations.
The new group, Illinois Croosroads Council Inc., will consist of 17,000
Girl Scouts ages 5 to 18, and 6,500 adult volunteers and staffers.
----------NOTE: I wonder what this means the inclusion of "inc."?????
For the approximately 2,000 area Scouts, merger with the Prairie Council
will mean more opportunities, according to troop leader Barbara Mondrus.
---and on and on ---
thought those of you who might think only BSA merges because of finances
might be interested to know the Girl Scout councils have the same problem.
