Can you help ensure the girls in your Community achieve their full potential? For more than 85 years, Girl Scouts have helped the girls of America reach their full potential. Washington Rock Girl Scout Council currently serves over 10,000 girls in Union, Somerset and Middlesex Counties. Our Council's Nominating Committee is currently developing a database of adult volunteers to serve on the Board of Directors, Nominating Committee and other Board committees and Task Forces. We are requesting the assistance of the communities we serve to identify individuals who can provide leadership in the development of policy, in setting direction for the Council, and in support of fund development for the future of our girls. Men or women experienced in property management and fund development are our greatest need at present. To submit a referral or request more information, please contact us at wrgsc_nc@hotmail.com.
