“We are thrilled to finally reveal the updated South Portland Service Center and offer the public an opportunity to explore workshops inspired by our latest program innovations. Our new space offers the vibrancy and resources necessary to inspire Girl Scouts to take action and spark change, and we are looking forward to sharing that with everyone in conjunction with the Weekend of Service,” says GSME CEO, Mara Robinov-Moorhead.?
