There were 1,145 Girl Scouts, Alumni, volunteers, family, and friends from across the state of Kansas gathered together Saturday, April 28 in Greensburg for Girl Scouts of Kansas Heartland’s Premier 100 anniversary celebration Girl Scouts Go Greensburg!
This epic event included fun and educational activities provide by great community partners like The Bug Lady and the Kansas Department of Wildlife and Parks and Tourism, as well as Girl Scout traditions like camping and SWAPS, along with great concerts for the girls and their families.
Girl Scouts could be seen all over town in the newly rebuilt “green” community, helping to plant a community garden, participating in indoor archery, conducting a science experiment, or getting their face painted at the Go Green Block Party! Ceremonies included a council-wide Young Women of Distinction presentation and prize drawings from Cabela’s! While live music was heard throughout the day, headlining performances included Gooding, which was a hit with the older girls, and Manika, a favorite of the younger Girl Scouts. Special guests included Kansas State Senator Gregory and Carissa Kelley, Miss Kansas 2011!
