Brand New Things to Do

Sometimes great opportunities happen after we publish S'more.

So, when we have a great program that didn't make it into S'more, we'll list it here under Brand New Things To Do -- along with your link to Register Online for that program or event.

These Things to Do are great for troops or Indie girls. Check out the program descriptions for more details.

Don't forget to check out S'more, which provides info on almost all GSWPA programs and events.
