Ornament Making Party 11/6 for Zoo Tree Trimming

We will be making recycled ornaments in our troop separably at a meeting. If you wish to make an additional one for the zoo please feel free. Parents will still need to order the patch from the zoo and or make reservations if they plan on attending either the open house or the actual Zoo tree trimming.

This is not a troop sponsored event and a parent must attend with a Brownie

Our Service Unit has purchased a tree to decorate for Brookfield
Zoo's Holiday Magic. The theme of our tree will be to make ornaments
from recycled items. If you cannot attend either event as a troop,
please let your girls and their families know that they can participate
as individuals. All troops in Service Unit 411 are invited to the

Ornament Making Party
Saturday, November 6th

Noon to 5:00pm
Mater Christi School
2400 S. 10th Ave. (corner of 10th & 24th)
North Riverside

Please note: 10th Ave. is one-way going north on the 2200block and
one-way going south on the 2400 block. Best way to get there is to take
1st avenue to 24th street until you get to 10th.

This is an Open House Party, meaning, you can come for an hour or stay
the whole time. If you cannot attend the tree trim but want to make
ornaments, please join us. We'll make sure that they get on the
tree. You are also eligible to purchase a patch because you are
participating by making the ornaments.

Please bring:

· adequate chaperones, especially for the younger girls as
they might not be able to do all the work on their own

· ornament ideas, materials, and tools (for example,
scissors, glue, paint and brushes, anything needed to make your
project), plus extra materials to share with others

· newspaper or plastic so we can cover the tables

· snacks and drinks to share (we will provide cups, and

Anyone who has ideas for recyclable ornaments can post the ideas on the
Yahoo Group site. Let us know if you have materials but don't know
what to make with them. For example, I personally have many CDs, lids
from laundry detergent and corks. What can I do with them? Brookfield
Zoo lists the following as NOT allowed on the trees:

Materials NOT Allowed on Trees

• strung Styrofoam "peanuts"
• ornaments made of dough (even if varnished or shellacked)
• glass items or objects with jagged edges
• unlaminated paper
• tinsel (or icicles)
• straw
• food items: food on strings (popcorn, cereal, cranberries, pasta,
etc.), dog biscuits or other dry pet food, items containing bird seed
(such as pine cones or ice cream cones dipped in peanut butter or suet),
candy canes, anything valuable (Brookfield Zoo is not responsible for
ns that are missing or stolen)

Completed ornaments will be used to decorate our tree at Brookfield Zoo:
Community Tree Trim

Brookfield Zoo

Saturday and Sunday, November 20th & 21st
10:00am to 5:00pm

Patches: $4.00

You can get a patch even if you just make ornaments and cannot attend
this event. It is recommended that you order your patches as soon as you
know how many you will need. For tickets, if you use a credit card, the
deadline is November 19 in order to get a printable ticket. If you use a
check, you need to print off a form and allow yourself enough time for
your order to be processed and sent to you before the event. You will
pay quite a bit more if you wait to purchase admission at the gate.
