If you have children interested in becoming a scout, mark your calendar. There are two upcoming information nights for boys and girls in town.

These information nights are geared towards the parents. But if you need to bring your kids along, they generally have something to keep them occupied.

Southborough Cub Scout Registration Night

cub scoutsWednesday, September 3, 6:30 – 8:00 pm at Finn School Cafeteria.

This recruiting event is for families with boys in 1st through 4th grades.

The info session is mostly geared to parents.  It’s a chance to ask questions, learn what’s involved, and sign up.

In past promotional materials, Southborough Packs 1, 26 and 921 promised:

In Cub Scouts, your son will have lots of fun, learn new things and make new friends. But Cub Scouts is much more than that; it is fun with a purpose.

Scouting is a family oriented organization.

Scouting develops character, leadership, communication skills and good citizenship.

Girl Scout Registration Night

If you are interested in signing up your daughter or learning more about it, come to the the annual Girl Scouts registration night. Ages start as young as Kindergarten (with Daisies).

Girl Scouts progress as old as adult members, so there’s no grade cap on this one!

Why join Girl Scouts?

Their website answers:

Girl Scouts provides girls with the opportunity to DISCOVER their world, CONNECT with others and TAKE ACTION to make a difference in their communities.

Our age-appropriate programs, delivered with energy and expertise by deeply committed volunteers and staff, allow girls to explore their interests and unlock their potential.
