Celebrating National S'mores Day with Girl Scouts
In celebration of National S'mores Day on August 10th, some local Girl Scouts are teaching the community about the history of the s'more.
They are hosting a free event in Asheville, where you can join them in making a s'more.
Girl scouts can also teach you how to make your s’more unique using girl scout cookies, which is an idea they learn at their camp.
On News 13 This Morning, local Girl Scouts, Jesseca Ballard, Carolina Turbyfill, Lena Dorsey and Dannielle Payne show Lauren Brigman how to craft the perfect campfire treat.
Girl Scout Jesseca Ballard says the organization is credited with recording the first s'more recipe, back in 1927.
They are also awarded patches for carrying on the legacy with events like this.
"Since we made the s'mores, we have a lot of things going on for s'mores day. We have the patches that we'll earn and it's just like little memories that we can keep on us and have fun with,” says Ballard, with Girl Scout Troop #30212
Thursday’s event also includes games and a photo booth. You can learn about joining Girl Scouts or volunteering. The event is underway in Asheville, through 7 p.m. at the Girl Scout service center, located at 31 College Place, Building C, in Asheville.
