Girl Scouts of Kansas Heartland Council is relocating its Salina regional office to a more centralized location in Salina. The new location at St. John’s Lutheran Church at 302 S. Seventh St. will provide many benefits to Girl Scout members and staff. The previous office location closed on December 15 and will remain closed through the end of the year to prepare for the move. The new office will open at 8 a.m. on Tuesday, Jan. 2.
Girl Scouts of Kansas Heartland had been researching possible office locations in the area for some time, and this excellent opportunity was presented as a possible location by the council’s Salina area Board Member, Dr. Paula Fried. “Upon meeting with Reverend Foster, it was wonderful to learn that the church and its congregation have a clear mission of helping non-profits that serve the community,” said Liz Workman, chief executive officer of Girl Scouts of Kansas Heartland. “We are very appreciative of St. John’s hospitality as we continue to serve Girl Scouts in North Central Kansas.”
The education space utilized by Girl Scouts of Kansas Heartland was recently occupied by another non-profit who has since moved to a larger location. There are many benefits to the new space but a major advantage is the availability of a large meeting room in the basement of the facility for council-sponsored trainings and special events. At this time, the space is not available to individual troops for meetings, but it will be nice to have a space for multiple Girl Scouts to gather for council events. Girl Scout visitors will be utilizing the South entrance of the church. There are plans for signage after the first of the year.
See the new location first-hand by visiting the open house event on January 18 from 4 to 7 p.m. Learn more about Girl Scouts at kansasgirlscouts.org.
