Local Boy and Girl Scouts troops were looking for new members Thursday.
The co-hosted event took place at the Girls Scouts center in Emporia. The event included snacks and games for kindergarten through fifth grade children.
Boy Scouts representative Alex Mosakowski says they annually recruit between 120-140 scouts spread out over three counties. Mosakowski says with several troops in multiple areas, events like this play a large role in filling troops with new members.

Girl Scouts outside membership recruiter Reba Basore says they are currently rolling out a list of new badges and programs to keep their scouts as active in the community as possible.
