Girl Scouts offer child care service

Cadette Girl Scout Troop No. 506 is sponsoring a "Kids Stay, Parents Play" child care service on three upcoming Saturdays at West Haven Baptist Church.

Parents can leave their children in the care of troop members and go Christmas shopping, see a movie or just enjoy a day out. The children will play games and make crafts.

The cost is $2 an hour for each child. The service will be offered from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. but children don't have to come for the entire time.

The service will be available this Saturday, as well as Nov. 25 and Dec. 9.

Several of the seventh-graders in the troop are certified baby sitters. Several adults will be present on these Saturdays.

The troop is raising money to take a trip to Washington, D.C., in the summer of 2002. Working with younger children also will help troop members earn leadership pins and badges.

Call Paige Robinson, 369-9701, or Elizabeth Higbee, 845-3811, to make a reservation.
