“We had the girls working in separate sections. So there was a set that were giving out graham crackers and chocolates, as well as a group that were putting marshmallows on sticks,” McCullough said. “Followed by, there were two older girls on each side taking the hot marshmallows off and we had two kids running back and forth making sure the s’mores were put into place.”
The girls selected for the trip did well in their cookie sales and signed up for another year.MORE NEWS: Investigation Underway After Fatal Police-Involved Shooting During Well-Being Check In Malvern, Chester County DA Says
