The Girl Scouts of Western Pennsylvania will hold an event in Verona and other locations in the region on National S’mores Day on Friday.

People will make s’mores, enjoy activities and learn more about Girl Scouts and the organization’s mission from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Penn Hills Community Park, 120 Colorado St.

The event is for all K-12 girls and their families.

The treat that sandwiches a semi-melted marshmallow between two graham crackers and chocolate has roots in the organization’s history, said a Girl Scouts news release. The first written recipe was in the 1927 book “Tramping and Trailing with the Girl Scouts.”

Each Girl Scout who brings a friend to one of the events Friday will receive a “Make S’more Friends” patch if the friend becomes a Girl Scout.

Other events are happening in Tarentum, McKeesport, Allison Park starting Aug. 9. For a full list of events, visit the Girl Scouts of Western Pennsylvania’s activity calendar .

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
