Cadette Troop 2800, made up of 7th and 8th graders, sponsored Santa’s Workshop for the first time this year. Santa’s Workshop has been a Girl Scout yearly tradition in the La Cypress Park Service Unit for many years.
It is an opportunity for the Cadettes to develop their leadership skills by organizing a rather large
event while providing younger Girl Scouts, their families, and their friends with several hours of fun craft activities. The Cadettes worked all summer to prepare a variety of crafts for the attendees to create while at Santa’s Workshop. Several crafts were free and others ranged in price from $1 to $5.
The Kiwanis Club of Cypress prepared and served over 100 pancake breakfasts.
Mr. and Mrs. Claus stopped by to visit and were happy pose for pictures with everyone present. Those in attendance also had a chance to win fun items from the raffle, purchase homemade gifts, and participate in a silent auction.
