40th annual Tree Lighting

Join Scripps Ranch Girl Scouts and the Scripps Ranch Civic Association to kick off the holiday season with Santa pictures, holiday inclusive crafts, a bake sale, a sing-along, toy drive and tree lighting ceremony on Sunday, Dec. 4 from 3 to 5 p.m. in Jerabek Park, 10150 Avenida Magnifica.

Scripps Ranch Girl Scout Troop 3828 is busy putting together an amazing event, and everyone is invited to attend the 40th Annual Scripps Ranch Tree Lighting.

The troop will collect new, unwrapped toys for the Toys for Tots program. Every Girl Scout or Boy Scout who donates a toy will receive a patch.

The bake sale proceeds will go to SHARE, to help all girls become Girl Scouts
even if they can’t afford to.

New this year, Scripps Ranch Girl Scouts are partnering with Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices CA Properties and Ride Above Disability (RAD) therapeutic riding center, to have some extra special surprises and photo opportunities.

The local Girl Scouts organization is looking for any Scripps Ranch residents who were part of Scripps Ranch Girl Scouts in 1982 – the first year the Tree Lighting took place – to honor them at the special anniversary of this event. Email troop03828@gmail.com if you were a Scripps Ranch Girl Scout who attended the first tree lighting.
