Ladies of all ages: Senior/Ambassador Girl Scout Troops 6180 and 6795 are hosting a tea party, 2 -4 pm on Saturday May 7, 2016 in the Florence Burnham Hall at the Girl Scout Balboa Program Center. Don your tea party best and enjoy good tea, finger sandwiches, sweet treats, a craft, a photo booth (bring your own camera) and a play, performed by the Senior/Ambassador girls.

Space is limited . $15 per person. Contact Alicia Bianchi at firstname.lastname@example.org. Flyer attached.
Every morning before the Fair begins, we have an opening ceremony at the O'Brien (main) Gate, about a half hour before the gates open. Girl Scouts and Boy Scouts raise the flags, and local singers and instrumentalists perform the National Anthem. After that you and your troop, and parent chaperones can explore the fair, participate in the patch earning scavenger hunt and have a great day for free!
Daily Flag RaisingOpen to all San Diego County Scout troops that have patch-earning capabilities. We raise both the American and California flags each day at Opening Ceremonies. The Fair provides admission and parking credentials so your group can enjoy the Fair the same day you raise the flag. Multiple groups may assist in each day's Flag Raising, but all groups will be a part of the ceremony. Before you start the application process:

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!

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! 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!! 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 firstname.lastname@example.org. (Tell them Debbie Lechner sent you!)
