Girl Scouts hosts Day of the Dead event in Denver Nov. 1


Hi. It’s Marcela again. And I am here for blog #2 of our Hispanic Heritage Month blog series on how Colorado Hispanics are participating in Girl Scouts. If you missed our blog from earlier this week, read it here.

For this blog, I wanted to share information about an exciting event that the Girl Scouts of Colorado staff is planning in Denver around the Day of the Dead, which is primarily a holiday celebrated in Mexico by families to honor loved ones who have died.

Join Girl Scouts at Regis University in Denver for a Day of the Dead celebration on Nov. 1.

Please first call 303-607-4867 to sign up or email marcela.gaete@gscolorado.org (Or Register Online by Oct. 17th: http://www.girlscoutsofcolorado.org/events/643)

FREE cultural event sponsored by Girl Scouts and Regis University. Girls in grades K-12 and families are welcome.

It’s a wonderful opportunity to sign your daughter and special girl up for Girl Scouts where she discovers her interests and potentials! Adults are welcome to sign up too!
