Ho, ho, ho! Santa is on his way to Scripps Ranch and will be riding into town for the 36th annual Scripps Ranch Girl Scout Tree Lighting. This year’s Tree Lighting will be Sunday, Dec. 9, from 3 to 5 p.m. at Jerabek Park and is hosted by Junior Troop 3154. The concert in the park will follow immediately after.
The event’s theme will be “Winter Wonderland.” The event will again serve as a collection point for toys and games for Toys for Tots, and everyone who donates will receive an event patch.
Other festivities include winter themed crafts, winter wonderland and snowman décor, visits with Santa and carols sung by all levels of Girl Scouts.
Girl Scouts will also host a bake sale featuring a variety of tasty items from brownies to cookies and other festive treats and warm beverages. Those planning to attend are encouraged to bring a few dollars for these tasty treats which will be available for $1 per item. The proceeds from this annual bake sale will benefit the Girl Scout SHARE program which helps fund girl scouting activities for girls who are unable to afford them.
This event is sure to put you in the winter season spirit!
