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.
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!
Bilingual mass at John Francis Regis Chapel 5:15-6:15 p.m.
Between 5-8 p.m., groups will have the opportunity to visit various stations:
- Main Hall; Room 333: Altar, dream boards, dream catchers – photos; food; memories of loved ones are welcome; no candles please (55 capacity)
- Modular A 185 at Beach Field: Sugar Skull making and Day of the Dead craft sale (75 capacity – starting 5:30 p.m.; every half hour)
- Science Center Amphitheater: poetry reading, drama interpretation, song, dance, music, talent to share (150 capacity – every 15-30 minutes beginning 5:30 p.m.)
