With spring almost here, Girl Scouts line up fun activities

Local Girl Scouts are already planning fun events for spring, with a visit to a historic ranch, a night of mall madness, and an afternoon cheering on the KC Royals.

On Wednesday, March 22, 2017, scouts in fourth grade and older will visit Pioneer Bluffs, at Matfield Green, Kan. They will spend a day at the historic Flint Hills ranch, skip rocks and hike along Crocker Creek, and discover the secrets and history of a century-old barn. Pioneer Bluffs is a National Register Historic District. Everyone on this adventurous day can earn a Farm Fun Patch. Bring a sack lunch and have a picnic. Snack provided; $9 per girl. Register by March 13. For more information, contact Paula Roper at 620-343-4088 or [email protected].

It’s a bird? No, it’s a plane? No, it’s the Girl Scouts at Mall Madness! From 8 p.m. Saturday, April 22, to 7 a.m. Sunday, April 23, at Flinthills Mall, Emporia, will be a super powered girl party with music, food, and crafts all night long. Scouts in fourth through 12th grades are invited to come dressed as a superhero and show their super powers. Need more information? Contact Gwen Harris at 620-341-7301 or [email protected]. Snack provided; $20 per girl and $10 per adult. Register by April 1.

For “Girl Scout Day at the K!” girls and their families are invited to come cheer on the Kansas City Royals as they take on the Blue Jays, 1:15-4 p.m. Sunday, June 25, at Kauffman Stadium, in Kansas City, Mo. This is a family event; all girls must be accompanied by a parent, and are responsible for their own transportation to and from the event. A carpool will be leaving from the Emporia Girl Scout Amend Center at 10 a.m. Game starts at 1:15 p.m. Note that MLB reserves the right to move this game to an evening game as late as two weeks before June 25. Refunds and exchanges will not be available if the game time is moved. Event T-shirts are available and can be ordered when registering. For more information, contact Nikki at 620-757-0385 or [email protected]. Register by March 20.
