The Tiger Lilies
Introducing….. The Tiger Lilies! The Tiger Lilies are a group of first grade girls that attend St. Joseph
Elementary School here in Long Beach, and their Moms. This is our first year as a Circle and we’ve had
an amazing time together! We started in September with a trip to the LB Nature Center where we had a
scavenger hunt, and then in October we went to Tanaka Farms to pick pumpkins. Our Tanaka Farms ad-
venture was followed with a pumpkin carving party just in time for Halloween. November was a special
outing… a luncheon at American Girl Café! In the New Year, we participated in the Justin Rudd Beach
Clean Up (and had our picture in the Grunion Gazette!), Kayaked in Alamitos Bay & hiked to the water-
falls in Eaton Canyon. We are excited to be participating in Camp Fox this year, and know that there
will be many memories made in the years to come.
The Tiger Lillies have
been a busy circle!
Look at all of the ac-
tivities that they have
done together! Looks
