Girl Scouts to have lock-in; membership, registration deadlines are upcoming

ASHLAND — Local Girl Scouts are returning to an activity they haven’t participated in in 15 years.

The Wilderness Road Council will have a lock-in Nov. 22 at the Kyova Mall.

Destiny Cordle, membership specialist for the council, said a recent lock-in at the Huntington Mall by the Black Diamond Council attracted Girl Scouts from Kentucky, who returned to their troops with glowing reports.

“We’re very excited to do this one in our area and the girls are excited,” Cordle said. “Five troops from here went to the Huntington lock-in.

“We were looking through our records and we used to put them on here and we decided, ‘why don’t we do these programs anymore? We need to do some of these programs.’”

The lock-in, open to any Girl Scout in the Black Diamond Council and as well as those in troops toward Lexington, will include pizza, inflatables¸ indoor golf and showings of “Free Birds” and “Hunger Games 2”at midnight. Breakfast will be served at Callihan’s American Pub and Grill.

Cordle said the lock-in will have a limit of 200 girls and 100 leaders, but if there is an overwhelming response, she said they can handle more.

The event will benefit River Cities Harvest; admission is $20 per person for girls in the Wilderness Road Council and $25 for those outside the council. T-shirts will be available for $3, with an extra $3 for extra large sizes. Donations of canned food will be accepted, too.

Participants must be registered Girl Scouts by Sept. 30 and must register for the event by Oct. 4.

Cordle said she wanted the community to know what the Girl Scouts are doing.

“We’re still thriving and we want to be part of the community and to give back and participate,” she said. “We want to let people know we have a lot of outstanding girls here who want to support the community.
