The girls of Chico-Paradise Assembly stayed active during the shutdown. Our Worthy Advisor planned different themes for virtual business meetings such as pajamas, Disney©, Hawaiian, and camping. We also did fun activities each month. A few of the activities included All About Me collages, and a Netflix© Party where we watched Chicken Little and ate popcorn/snacks.
We had the opportunity to work with the girls of Red Bluff Assembly to plan our virtual Official Visit. Our theme was “Welcome to Jumanji” which included costumes, music, a video skit, and a Kahoot game. Over 200 people attended our Official Visit! Chico-Paradise made a Grand Service donation to The Painted Turtle.
We welcomed our newest member, London Victorino, on August 15th at the state Virtual Initiation. She loved her yard sign and welcome gifts from our Assembly. The shutdown gave us a chance to get to know Alyssa Kiffer, Grand Representative to California, Washington, and Idaho and Grand Christian Flag Bearer in Virginia. She participated in our meetings and
activities and our assembly participated in her virtual 5K fundraiser.
Our largest Grand Service project fundraiser is the Paradise Chocolate Fest. This year, it was held virtually on September 12th. Our Worthy Associate Advisor created a Facebook© post about our organization and how we support the Paradise community. The post was shared with hundreds of people on social media. We were honored to receive a grant as a youth beneficiary. The grant money will go towards the Grand Service Project.
We look forward to a Beauty and the Beast© themed virtual Installation on October 4th. We enjoy seeing each other online, but can’t wait to get back together in person soon!
