There was free popcorn and fun had by all last night, Thursday, May 8, at the Broadway Block Party in Downtown Redlands. The free event was the kick-off party to Give BIG San Bernardino. (By the way, you can still help our girls get to camp and provide uniforms to those who can’t afford them by giving BIG! There’s still a little time left!)
Girl Scouts, Boy Scouts and children of all ages enjoyed the special entertainment provided by the Mariposa Elementary School Chorus and hilarious skits by members of the Redlands High School cast of “Oklahoma.”
Girl Scout Emiko, a Junior from Troop 2429, showed her friend from the Mariposa Chorus the different Girl Scout uniforms on display.
Girl Scout Angela, a Daisy from Troop 2115, used beads in a crafting project while Girl Scout Sierra, a Brownie from Troop 628, played the bean bag “frog” toss at the GSSGC booth with her younger siblings.
There was even a friendly swap of Girl Scout cookies for Boy Scout popcorn between GSSGC’s Katherine Smith and BSA-CIEC’s (Boy Scouts of America – California Inland Empire Council) Ricci Dula.
Organizations participating at the Broadway Block Party were: the Boys and Girls Club of Greater Redlands-Riverside; Crafton Hills College Foundation; Family Service Association of Redlands; GSSGC; Historical Glass Museum Foundation, Redlands Art Association; San Bernardino County Museum Association; Wildlands Conservancy; KVCR; Arts Connection; Yucaipa Animal Placement Society; KVCR; BSA-CIEC; and Redlands Community Center.
