The NEW 2017 decorator's pin is here!

Order your 

2014 , 2015 & 2016 decorator's pins today

 We have stocked up!

  • Please arrive at least 30 minutes before your shift time begins.
  • ALL PAID OR NON-PAID TROOPS/GROUPS: Send one person with your filled out Timesheet to the Sign-In Table. Do not fill in the Time In & Time Out columns before arriving.
  • All decorating is at one location! Parking for both Dry and Floral will be in the marked adjacent lot on Adelante St., which is just a short walk to the motor home (after Dec. 25th) and the Fiesta building. Do not park in the lot next to the Fiesta Building on Avenida Padilla. There is NO street parking anywhere. Please make sure all of your drivers are aware of this.
  • Since you sign in, you must also sign out- ALL TROOPS/GROUPS. Any troop without a sign out time will only earn half a shifts pay. When working two shifts, please send one adult to see Kathleen to sign out of the first shift and re-sign in for the second.
  • There is no room inside the building for storage. All personal belongings, including purses, meals, etc., should be kept in your car(s). Any apparently lost items you find should be turned-in to us at the MOTORHOME and they will be returned providing there is a name and troop number on them. All unclaimed items will be discarded after December 31st. **We are not responsible for any lost items or theft.**
  • Please do not leave for meals until the break is officially called. We have a brief schedule of clean-up before the meal breaks, and by leaving early, you hinder that schedule.
  • No food or drink (only water bottles) is allowed inside the building. No alcohol is allowed on Fiesta Premises. Smoking is only allowed outside the building.
  • No one is to climb or sit on the float or scaffolding unless they have been explicitly assigned and trained to a specific job. Once their job is done there, they should leave the float and/or scaffolding as soon as possible. Be sure to clean up your area BEFORE you leave.
  • Remember to come prepared (mentally and physically) to wait around until you are assigned. You will be placed where you are needed and it requires time for the Supervisor to assess the needs for the day and get the different groups started. Be prepared! Bring books, cards, G.S. handbooks, etc. This is an opportunity to teach the girls patience and resourcefulness.
  • Please, keep your work area and around the float as neat as possible, dispose of empty containers as you empty them and clean any work area you use BEFORE moving on to another job. It’s much easier to clean as you go then to leave it all until the end when we have to completely clean before leaving for the day. Please keep the outhouses clean! Don’t throw paper on the floor, and if you drop it PICK IT UP! If you see a problem, report it to Kathleen, Girl Scout shift supervisor.
  • To participate in decorating on the overnight - "on the line", parents must understand that this night is NOT a Girl Scout event and there may not be adult supervision at times. Adults, Ambassadors, Seniors, older Cadettes and all experienced people will have priority and, you should let Kathleen know if you are interested.
  • For paid troops - you should expect your check in the mail by the end of April. Be sure to complete a "Money Earning Activity Form" and turn into your council prior to receipt of your check.
  • For non-paid troops - be sure to bring your community service paperwork to be signed or ask us for a letter.
  • The most important rule of all: HAVE FUN!!!!
