Founded over 100 years ago, Girl Scouts helps girls develop their full individual potential; relate to others with increasing understanding, skill, and respect; develop values to guide their actions and provide the foundation for sound decision making; and contribute to the improvement of society through their abilities, leadership skills, and cooperation with others.
HISTORY OF CRICKETTE:
The Crickette Club was established in 1941. The ladies who formed Crickette Club wanted to establish their own rules and not be affiliated with any state or national organization. They selected the name Crickette because it means 'fair play'.
 
WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO BE A CRICKETTE?
Crickettes are women in or retired from businesses and professions who take an active interest in Bartow's civic affairs and who, as a group, give their primary support to Bartow-area Girl Scouting, in addition to providing support for other civic and youth-related activities.
 
If you think you would like to join Crickette, we are eager to help you understand what makes us belong. Our bylaws define our role in the community.  We grow into the group as we develop understanding of how Crickette works and succeeds.  So please ask if we can help.
 
HOW CAN YOU BECOME A CRICKETTE?
To become a member of Crickette you must first be invited by a member. If you are interested in learning more about what Crickettes do together, how much committee work is involved, how much commitment should you plan for and your obligations, please contact us.
