What’s better than learning how to make S’mores? Learning about Girl Scouts at the same time!
At the recent Big Walnut Girl Scouts S’Mores and More event, girls learned to be flexible when the event moved inside due to rain. Girls and parents combined Nutella, marshmallow fluff, and graham crackers for the perennial Girl Scouts favorite: S’mores!
Parents learned about Girl Scouts while the girls made SWAPS (Special What-cha-ma-call-its Affectionately Pinned Somewhere); learned Girl Scout songs, had their faces painted, and ate yummy indoor S’Mores.
Troops are forming now for Girl Scouts in grades K-12. Learn about all you can do in scouting including being a Go-getter, Innovator, Risk-taker, and Leader or G.I.R.L.

Big Walnut Girl Scouts Launch Girl Media Squad
The Big Walnut Girl Scouts Service Unit has launched a Girl Media Squad. Six girls, in seventh through ninth grade, met recently with Girl Scouts Public Relations Coordinator Jeanna Burrell to learn about local media outlets, how to write a news release, how to take better pictures, and to plan activities for the school year. The girls will gather information and take pictures at local Girl Scout events and draft news releases to communicate to the public about Girl Scout events throughout the year.
