The afternoon tour leaves the Methodist church on Hwy 78, our meeting place for the tour, at one PM, but participants need to be at the church by 12:30 to receive their car assignments and to shop at our Craft boutique and for Baked goods. This year since we are celebrating the Apple Days Centennial we are visiting five wonderful old homes or Inns that have loads of history connected to them.

New Environmental Center At Girl Scouts" Camp Winacka In October 2009, Girl Scouts, San Diego-Imperial Council began construction on an innovative new Environmental Center at Camp Winacka, one of ourthree mountain camp properties. Located in the Cleveland National Forest, Camp Winacka is a traditional Girl Scout camp, featuring open-air cabins with built-in bunks. Amidst pine trees, fields and Manzanita, girls are encouraged to nurture an outdoor ethic, observing and learning to co-exist with deer, birds, lizards, and wild turkeys in the natural habitat we all share. For many years, Girl Scout program specialists conducted Camp Winacka's nature programs in a 9 x 12 tent. This make-shift facility was not conducive to presenting quality environmental and life sciences programs during the busiest camping season of the year. The camp's new Environmental Center--to be completed in time for the 2010 camping season--will be a state-of-the-art environmental reource facility. We will introduce girls to stimulating education programs and memorable hands-on experiences, at the center, and instill a personal appreciation for nature and a sense of responsibility and stewardship to the land. Our research shows that camping and outdoor experiences consistently rate at the top of both Girl Scout and non-Girl Scout interests, likely because outdoor education provides girls with experiences that safely take them out of their comfort zones and challenge their perceived limits. During the Center's first year alone, approximately 4,800 girls will enjoy entirely new experiences in life sciences, explore valuable ideas for protecting our environment and in the process, gain insights into themselves: we will serve at least 600 girls in our summer resident camps and 4,200 in the day camps we conduct at Camp Winacka nearly every weekend.

"Buddy" Sei/ert John Culver returns in the role of Ebenezer Scrooge in this years production of 'A Christmas Carol' This week we are .focusing on the children who are in A Christmas Carol. From what I've seen in rehearsals, we have a couple of ery promising budding actresses and actors in this year's performance./ One who stands out above the crowd (partly because she has a large enough part to show Iher talent) is Rachel Alexander, who is playing the Ghost of Christmas Past. In a brilliant inspiration by director Sandra Sladkey, a child ghost would take Scrooge back to revisit a painful period in his youth. Eleven-year-old Rachel is, in my opinion, highly gifted and should be studying acting seriously. She picks up direction as quickly and naturally as she picked up an English accent for her part in this play. Rachel and her family used to live in Julian, but work commitments recently forced them to move to Encinitas. All of Rachel's best friends are still in Julian and she is staying with them this week during our nightly rehearsals leading up to opening night on Thursday, Dec 10th. Rachel is in 5th grade and likes reading and writing poetry and would like to write fiction novels. This is her third time in A Christmas Carol, but she has participated in Christian Youth Theater in Ramona. She has not been able to find a good venue for acting in the Encinitas area yet, but fortunately for us; we have the opportunity to catch her on stage right here! Here is a little about the rest of the children who will be in this year's A Christmas Carol. The Cratchit Family (not pictured Amber Phillips) The Cratchit kids (by age) Amber Phillips (Martha Cratchit) 9th grade "This is my third time doing this play and I've been a cancan dancer in the melodrama and was in a play at my church. I'm taking drama class at high school. My brother and sister and mother are in this play, too." Randy Burke (Peter Cratchit) 7th grade "This my first play and it's a good place to start because I don't have too many lines. I get nervous in front of large crowds, but maybe this will help me get over that. It's fun and I've made lots of new friends. I like to ride my bike and play sports. Happy Holidays to everyone." Taylor Cole (Belinda Cratchit) 4th grade, 9 years old (Ann Reilly's daughter) "It's fun to act because you get to be another person and also make new friends. I like acting and doing homework! This is my first time doing this play, but I've done other plays. My mom, Ann Riley, is in the play, too, as the laundress and charity lady." Nitasha Drake (Sarah Cratchit) 2nd grade, 7 years old "1 live in Warner Springs and was in The Little Mermaid and Cinderella. I used to take gymnastics, but it's too far to drive now--but I still practice gymnastics at home and I love to sing. I don't get nervous on stage. My eighth birthday will be on Dec. 19 and we have a performance that night." Jana Lynn Shapiro (Tiny Tim) will be 5 on Dec 29th. Dori Smith is her grandmother and is in the choir and sings a solo. This is Jana's debut acting experience and she is very outgoing. It's a challenge to keep her from ad- libbing on stage! I asked her how she likes it. "Good. I like playing with the other kids." The Rat Pack (by age) Selah Sladkey (Ash and Girl 2) 13 years old, 8th grade "It's my fourth time in this play and my mom is directing it this year. We like doing things as a family. I've been a cancan dancer and have played my dulcimer in the melodrama olio. I was also in a Christmas play at my church and acted on my mom's radio program when I was really young. I love acting and would like to be an actress. I sing in a band (not named yet) and I like to read. I wish there was a drama club in Julian for kids. I'm home- schooled." continued on page 8 Your 2009 Eagles Football team gathered together for the last time at their Fall Sports Award Banquet last Monday night. 10 members of the 31-man team were selected to the 2009 Southern Conference Football All-League Team.
