Thursday, Aug. 10 is National S’mores Day, and to celebrate, the public is invited to make their own tasty s'mores with Girl Scouts of Kansas Heartland during FREE events in Wichita, Emporia, Liberal and Hays! During these come-and-go events, girls and their families can also enjoy hot dogs, fun activities, and learn more about how G.I.R.L.s (Go-getters, Innovators, Risk-takers, Leaders) lead the way in Girl Scouts.
