• Special to the Daily Leader
The community open house for the new Randall Girl Scout Building at Light Park took place on Sunday, June 27. The new Randall Girl Scout Building is named in honor of the generosity of Jean Randall and the additional financial support of the United Way of Seward County, City of Liberal and many other citizens.
More than 40 girls, volunteers, community members, parents and others enjoyed light refreshments, $5 pony rides by Fantasy Ponies, donated pastries from Spencer Browne’s Coffee House, an inflatable game, and the Seward County Fire Department had one of their fire trucks on hand to explore during the open house.
Everyone attending had the opportunity to create their own thumbprint art, learn more about Girl Scouting opportunities in Liberal and sign up to be a Girl Scout or volunteer during the open house.
Kelly Combs, membership services manager, Girl Scouts of Kansas Heartland, said, “It was a great event which gave us an opportunity to not only welcome the Girl Scouts of the Liberal area into the new building, but to thank the city and Jean Randall for bringing to reality a new home to all Girl Scouts in the Liberal area.”
Girl Scouting is rapidly growing in the Liberal area and there are nine troops of girls that are now able to learn, grow and enjoy this new building. Membership has increased by more than151 percent in just two short years. This is the time to be involved in Girl Scouting.
