Come Meet our Japanese GS visitors

The Oak Ridge GS service unit in cooperation with the OR Sister City Support Organization will be hosting a group of 12 girls and leaders from our sister city of Naka-shi, Japan. Current Girl Scouts and girls interested in joining a Girl Scout troop are invited to come meet our Japanese sisters and help with a local Girl Scout service project.  On Thursday, July 31, the Japanese girls and their US hostesses will be cleaning and dressing dolls for the Holiday Bureau’s “Dolls for Daisy” project.  This meeting will be at the OR Children’s library auditorium from 7:30 – 8:30 PM. Girls are invited to come help with the dolls, welcome the Japanese GS and register for local troops for the upcoming school year.
