Love those gooey, sweet treats called “s’mores”? Celebrate National S’mores Day from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Aug. 10 at an open house at the Girl Scouts of Northern New Jersey Service Centers. Visitors to any of the three service centers in Paramus, Randolph or Riverdale can enjoy a free s’more.
Can’t make it to the Girl Scouts’ offices? Visit Facebook or Twitter and share photos, videos, or even a favorite recipe for S’mores.
“Most people love s’mores and enjoyed their first s’more at summer camp,” said Betty Garger, President and CEO of Girl Scouts of Northern New Jersey. “This will be a fun way to celebrate Girl Scouts and this summer tradition and we are inviting the public to visit our offices and see what today’s Girl Scouting is all about.”
Staff will be on hand to share opportunities to become involved in Girl Scouts, through membership, the alumnae association, or with Girl Scout troop or family program activities. Girl Scout Service Centers are located at 300 Forest Avenue, Paramus, NJ; 1579 Sussex Turnpike, Randolph, NJ; and 95 Newark Pompton Turnpike, Riverdale.
Parents who are interested in signing up their girls for Girl Scouts are welcome to stop by and register for the upcoming program year.
National S’mores Day is sponsored by the National Confectioners Association. One of the first recorded recipes for a “Some More” dates back to a 1927 Girl Scout publication.

Girl Scouts of Northern New Jersey serves girls ages five through eighteen in 160 municipalities in Bergen, Morris, Passaic, Sussex and northern Warren counties. There are currently 30,150 girl members and 16,293 adult members. For more information, visit their website at www.gsnnj.org.
