(ST. JOSEPH, Mo.) Local girl scouts were at East Hills Shopping Center Sunday afternoon recruiting new members through hands-on activities.

 The event let new girls see what girl scouts are all about with stations relating to the group's areas of focus.

Along with the fun, educational activities like slingshots and building robots, the girls learned about the famous girl scout cookies.

Group leaders say the organization provides a lot of opportunities for young girls.

"They learn problem-solving skills and critical thinking," Carmen Brown-Jenco, director of the Girl Scouts said. "You name it we cover it."

Those interested in signing up for the girl scouts can contact the girl scouts office 816-279-7438.

The good news is our temperatures will be on the rise through the week. Sundays highs will be in the middle to upper 40s and Monday is expected to be even warmer. There is a slight risk for some evening rain showers Tuesday. By midweek highs will be pushing the 50s. By the end of the week we could be seeing highs in the 60s.
