The 2nd Grade Camp Fire Girls Club of Indianola hid 18 Jolly Snowmen for you to find while walking on the McVay Trail between 9th and 15th Streets. Camp Fire was created in 1910 as a way for young girls to learn about the outdoors. This year they wanted to combine their love for the outdoors, while also giving back to the community. What could be more fun than having a great game to play while people are on the trail! Thank you to the Camp Fire Girls for offering this awesome activity. Can you find all 18 snowmen?
