Girl Scout Troop 61981

Girls from Girl Scout Troop 61981 traveled from Pacifica to San Juan Bautista recently to help with a holiday celebration.

Earlier this month, members of Girl Scout Troop 61981 traveled to San Juan Bautista to participate in an Adopt-a-Family holiday celebration. Event organizer Kate Chinca explained it was an informal party with a purpose.

“We are not actually an organization,” said Chinca. “A group of us began to work with the farmworkers after the ’89 earthquake and it became a Christmas tradition to ‘adopt’ families at this time of the year.
