Service project requirements

Los Cerritos Wetlands Stewardship and Friends of the Colorado Lagoon

Please attend one event from each of the above groups to fulfill the service project requirement for the Wood Gatherer Award. You may attend any event you would like, Habitat Restoration, Trash Clean up, Bird Walk, Estuary Exploration. Feel free to invite your friends and family to these as well. We will share about these grouops with all of Camp Fire at Kiniya on November 19th, so please complete both before then (bottom line deadline is December 19th).

Dates are listed on the flyers handed out at the first meeting, i have plenty of copies if you need them.

Good Neighbor Festival: stop by if you can between 10am and 3pm to visit our table and help out (good neighbor park near the el dorado library). We will be making buttons with my button machine. There will be a chalk art contest that sounds pretty interesting to me, so come if you can.

Cubberley Recruitment Night: I will be at Keller on wednesday Sept 30th, so come by the cafe at Cubberley if you want to help Stacey's group pass out info and talk with interested parents. We are starting a new Kindergarten group at Cubberley this year and need new members, maybe you know a friend with a kinder kid who wants to join? Let me know.

reminders for up coming meeting

here are a few photos of the colorado lagoon clean up and the first ever los cerritos wetlands clean up.

meetings will remain at the church and continue at 5pm

bring your filled out "officer" form and your choice for a future meeting (there were three pages of those) you can also choose something you want to do that is not on the list if you describe it to me and we can figure out a bead for it. (for example: you have a chicken for a pet, we could visit your pet and you could teach us about it)

the "outdoor progression" is a special patch we will be earning this year. put the handout of the requirements in your new workbook. we will go over it together at the next meeting.

dues for the year will be 60 dollars, please bring to the next meeting. this will cover entry fees to camp fire events, craft supplies and beads/patches and awards. at each meeting we will collect whatever change you can bring and put it toward a fun event at the end of the year. the treasurer will keep track of it for us.

make sure all the info on our new roster is correct and complete

two recruitment events: this saturday (26th) is the good neighbor festival (at the good neighbor park adjacent to el dorado library) we will be hosting a table. i will be there from about 9am to 3pm and could really use the company (event starts at 10am). if you can stop by for even 30 minutes i would really appreciate it! there will be booths for the girls to go to so it will be fun too. siblings and friends welcome to this event.
Wednesday Sept 30th (i believe it will be at 6pm, but might be 7pm... will follow up on that) at Cubberley in the cafeteria, just like the last few years, is the camp fire recruitment night. the girls can come and visit with any new kids that stop by and the parents can chat with us. if you can stop by for just a few minutes to show your support, i would really appreciate it. everyone is welcome (siblings, friends, family...)

bring your workbook in a folder next week, we will go over it together. make sure you keep the yearly calendar in a safe place so you know what is coming up next.

thanks everyone!
