On December 8 from 5 - 8 p.m. at the Pueblo Zoo, Centennial High School’s Girl’s Cabinet club will volunteer at the Pueblo Zoo’s Electric Critters event.
Head girl, Neela Ropp, arranged for the club to attend this Christmas themed event to allow the girls to be involved in a well known community event.
After the success of the Zoo Boo during Halloween, Girl’s Cabinet decided to participate in yet another zoo event for the kids.
“I think it’s a good idea to participate in Electric Critters since it’s so popular in Pueblo,” Ropp said.
Many of the girls claim to be excited to volunteer at the zoo because they said they remember visiting the Electric Critters at the zoo when they were young.
It will be a great opportunity for them to relive their childhood during a fun evening of serving refreshments to the kids and their families.
They explained that sometimes, as we grow older, we forget that what really matters is the moments we share with each other and the memories we make together.
The Girl’s Cabinet members also said they are thrilled to have a chance to be involved in the Christmas spirit by giving back to their community and celebrating the winter season.
The zoo staff, among other community service members, directed the girls to prepare to arrange lights and set up colorful animal themed decorations to excite the kids as they walk through the zoo’s winter wonderland.
The girls will be operating the zoo’s cafe to hand out hot chocolate and other treats to the children and their parents as they walk through the zoo to look at the colorful lights.
The girls will be allowed to dress up to fit the holiday theme with Santa hats, reindeer antlers, and any other Christmas themed items to throw themselves into the holiday spirit.
The weather is estimated to be chilly with snow flurries which makes for the perfect time to dress cozy in jackets and winter clothing while drinking hot chocolate and viewing Christmas decorations.
But until the start of the Electric Critters event, the members of Girls Cabinet will continue to look forward to a little Christmas spirit.
