Aug. 10 is National S’mores Day, and Girl Scouts of Kansas Heartland invites the public to a free celebration to create their own delicious s’mores.

Families can enjoy free s’mores and hot dogs for National S’mores Day from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Wednesday, Aug. 10 at the Girl Scouts of Kansas Heartland’s Hays office, 2707 Vine, Suite 8.

Council staff will be at both the Hays and Wichita events to help girls sign up or renew for Girl Scouts and speak with those interested in making a difference in their community through a variety of volunteer opportunities.

National S’mores Day events:

· 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 10 at the Hays Girl Scout Office, 2707 Vine, Suite 8 in Hays

· 5 to 7 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 10 at Girl Scouts of Kansas Heartland’s headquarters, 360 Lexington in Wichita

The delicious marshmallow, chocolatey, graham-cracker treat is rooted in Girl Scout history. The recipe for a s’more dates back to a 1925 Girl Scout Leader magazine and a 1927 Girl Scouts of the USA handbook, “Tramping and Trailing with the Girl Scouts,” which featured a “Some More” recipe.
