WORCESTER — The Girl Scouts of Central and Western Massachusetts invites the public to join the grand opening celebration of its new Leadership Center on Sunday, Sept. 8, from 1 to 4 p.m. at 115 Century Drive.

The event is free, with separate fees for the food trucks. Activities will include archery, letter boxing, hula hooping, S’mores, slime making and other activities. Special activities will be conducted by the EcoTarium and the Worcester Railers.

The 7,400-square-foot facility houses 20-plus full-time staff, as well as a store stocked with everything a Girl Scout needs, a historical museum, and a large STEM center which is equipped with 3-D printers, a smartboard, robotics equipment, cameras and other devices to support girls’ STEM interests.

“The new Leadership Center is exactly what GSCWM needs to serve the girls of Central and Western Massachusetts for decades to come,” said Pattie Hallberg, CEO. “With state-of-the-art equipment and room to facilitate large and small groups, the Leadership Center will become a focal point for activities, meetings, and growth.”

The grand opening event is sponsored by RP Masiello, Citizens Bank, Fidelity Bank, TD Bank, and St. Pierre Manufacturing Company.
