Dallas Police Chief Renee Hall will kick off the Girl Scout Courage, Confidence and Character Summer Book Club for mothers and daughters Tuesday at Lake Highlands Presbyterian Church, at 8525 Audelia Road. The club, sponsored by Girl Scout Service Unit 165, includes 40 troops from all over Lake Highlands.
The book club began last summer and encourages girls of all ages to read and discuss stories of girls who have overcome obstacles to achieve their goals. The group will discuss “Who Was Sojourner Truth?” in June; “Who Was Helen Keller?” in July; and “Path to the Stars: My Journey from Girl Scout to Rocket Scientist” by Girl Scout CEO Sylvia Saucedo in August.
Any girl interested in joining Girl Scouts is encouraged to attend tonight’s event, which begins at 6:30 p.m. Supporters may donate funds to cover books ($25 will buy all 3) by contacting Jennifer Normile at firstname.lastname@example.org.
