Beach and Canyon Clean Up Dates

We’d like to invite you to save the date for the 14th Annual Creek to Bay Cleanup scheduled for Saturday, April 23rd from 9AM – 12noon.  We plan to bring out 6,000 San Diego County volunteers to beautify 100 locations throughout the region, including beaches, bays, trails, parks, and neighborhoods.  Last year, Creek to Bay volunteers removed over 180,000 pounds of litter and debris, in addition to painting, planting, and invasive plant removal projects to restore our environment. We hope you can join us for this year’s family-friendly event.  All locations will be posted online at www.CreektoBay.org with maps and directions, and you can register online for the site of your choice beginning April 1st.  Event information including instructions to enter our Bling Your Bucket contest, Bring Your Own Reusables campaign, scout patches, and event waivers that all volunteers must sign to participate (minors require a parent or guardian signature if under eighteen) will also be posted on the website for your reference. Stay in touch for event updates or help spread the word with social media using the Creek to Bay event page here. You can use the hashtag #Creek2Bay to share your favorite moments from the event! We are still in the process of finalizing cleanup sites, site captains, and event sponsors, so if you would like to get more involved in the event, please let me know.  We hope to see you there!

Looking for Mini-Golf Buddies

I'm looking for another troop to pair up with to meet the minimum participant requirement for Pell'y Mini Golf in Del Mar on Sat. Nov. 7th, 10am-12 noon. The course is 'ocean/water conservation themed' and ties in nicely with the 'Get Moving'Junior Journey or it can also stand alone as a fun patch activity.
2 options:
$10 per girl which includes round of golf with four (4) hands-on activities that are accomplished along the mini golf course, fun patch and lunch
or
$7.50 per girl without lunch
Email Shannon Donaghe at scdonaghe@cox.net if your troop or even individual girls are interested.  Thanks!
See flyer for more info.

Chula Vista has a Tall Ship! Bill of Rights

feat_BoR_on_ocean Chula Vista has a tall ship, called Bill of Rights, docked at the J. Street Marina on a permanent basis! The ship is 136 feet and holds 75 people! They offer a sail out to the bay and back (about 3-4 hours) for Girl Scouts for only $15!! They offer an overnight (for about 20 people) and the next day you sail out to the bay and back for only $50! They are really excited to get girl scouts interested in sailing and can tailor the program to talk about maritime history, marine biology, marine ecology, sailing techniques, navigation and even pirates! feat_downtown-crew A group of Boy Scouts is working on restoring an old boat and they have another one that Girl Scouts could work on. They have community service opportunities and have some small boats that they can teach sailing in. Such a great resource in our own backyard!! feat_education8 The schooner has a website http://schoonerbillofrights.com/ where you can learn more about the ship and the kinds of programs they offer. Contact them at (619) 500-2419 or email at info@sbfsa.org. (Tell them Debbie Lechner sent you!) feat_Schooner_Cup-1018x460

Visit SDSU With Kappa Delta Sorority!

Dear Girl Scout Troops, Leaders, & Parents, The ladies of Kappa Delta Sorority at San Diego State University would like to invite you to our Chapter-Hosted Campus Tour event! Mark your calendars for Sunday, March 15th, from 1p.m.-3p.m. Please arrive to our party between 1:00p.m and 1:15p.m. Our tour will be held on campus, but will commence at our house located at 5066 College Ave, San Diego, CA 92115.  The Campus Tour Event is a very important event for the sisters of Kappa Delta Sorority. We all love San Diego State University for the amazing educational opportunity that it provides to all its students. What better way to inspire future college students to become interested in their educational futures than to promote the uniqueness of our own campus! We will be having a campus-wide quest for which the girl scouts will be broken up into several teams, each lead by members of our sorority. Throughout the quest we will be providing the girls with information about not only the items on the list of things to find, but also about our own positive experiences with the school. At the end of the event, each team will be awarded with a prize to honor the efforts made in the quest. We will also be making posters together, which will demonstrate good study habits and teach good study skills for students of all ages.  This event is open to Daisies, Brownies, Juniors, Cadettes, Seniors, and Juliettes. We also encourage your group to bring other young women along regardless of their involvement in Girl Scouts. For planning purposes, please RSVP your attendance to our Campus Tour event by March 11th, 2015 to betahrho.gsc@gmail.com. In your response, indicate the number of girls in your group that will be attending. The Kappa Delta girls look forward to seeing you there! Sincerely, You Kappa Delta Girl Scout Chairs, Madeline Staudinger and Taylor Mosack   You will be able to find parking in Parking Structure 6, located two blocks from Kappa Delta (see attached link for SDSU map).
