Della's 80th Birthday  Bash!!
Presented with love by Girl Scout Troop 651
July 10, 2005
Girl Scout Camp Klahanee
Hoquiam, WA.
On the following pages you'll find a photo story about  Troop 651's biggest hands on project ever. They had the tremendous honor of  planning and acting as hostesses for the 80th Birthday Bash  of our very dear friend, past council president, "mom", "Grandmother", "Great-Grandmother", and mentor, Della Wakefield.

The event was held as an act of love, Bronze Award project, Bridging and Award Ceremony event. It too place at Camp Klahanee on July 10, 2005.

Unfortunately the photos  are by necessity  fairly large files  (54-100 k) so there are a number of pages (in progress)  so as to make for less sluggish page loads. This site will be growing over the next week or two as time permits.

The first photos are from the first day at camp and the troops'  preparations.  The girls had sack lunches when they firsat arrived and then got to work! They posted signs on the various trails  where they would be taking visitors on tours,  mixed cement and made their event memory block for the patio, cleaned the old  memory blocks on the patio, etc. After a dinner of KFC they  worked on   food preparation,  practiced ceremonies for the next day, and learned to fold  a full sized flag for the very first time.

The photos begin here!
