City of Orange Cove and Girl Scouts Partner on Dog Clinic
When given the opportunity to make a difference in their community, Girl Scouts from Orange Cove chose to make a change through their furry friends.
On Saturday, June 15 at James Eaton Park in Orange Cove, Girl Scouts partnered with the City of Orange Cove to host a Dog Clinic from 1:00 PM to 3:00 PM. At this clinic they licensed and vaccinated dogs for minimal prices, subsidized by the City of Orange Cove. This was the second year the City of Orange Cove financed this clinic. There were also pets available for adoption, and Girl Scouts distributed flyers to dog owners about ways to help keep their pets safe on the Fourth of July. This event was a step towards the girls’ end goal for their community take action project: to establish a permanent pet clinic in Orange Cove.
Girl Scouts of Central California South organized a retreat on April 20, 2013 for Girl Scouts from Orange Cove and Orosi to work on a sustainable Challenge and Change project in their community. This Youth Leadership Development retreat, funded by the USDA Rural Youth Development, encouraged girls to make a change in their community. Girls learn leadership skills, responsibility, and ways to improve their future career prospects. Local community leaders from Exeter, Dinuba, Lindsay, and Orosi were presenters at this retreat:
Ernie Hernandez, former United Way Tulare Executive Director
Susan Manuel, Executive Director, Ruiz 4 Kids
Suzi Picaso, President, Picaso’s Passion, Inc.
Yolanda Valdez, Assistant Superintendent, Cutler-Orosi Unified School District
Girl Scouts used a community building survey created by United Way of Tulare County to ask local youth their opinion on community needs, and their thoughts on their future education options and possible careers. The girls analyzed these surveys and then created story boards depicting current conditions in their community and their vision for the future. Through this exercise, the girls concluded there were too many stray and homeless pets in Orange Cove and Orosi, and decided to work on projects to educate their own communities to effect positive change.
The local Girl Scouts also decided to create t-shirt designs that they wore to raise awareness about their project. Girl Scouts of Central California South encouraged community members and peers to ask Girl Scouts about the t-shirts in order to support, encourage, and spread the word about their Challenge and Change project.
For more information about the USDA Grant and the Challenge and Change Rural Youth Development project, go to girlscoutsccs.org/usda-rural-youth-grant/.
If she’s not involved with Girl Scout activities, you just may find HadezbahBrisa B. dancing. Her love of dancing goes past the jazz and tap she has done in the past, but reaches a whole other level and reflects her passion for her culture. HadezbahBrisa, known as Breezy, can be found this weekend dancing at the 13th Annual Table Mountain Rancheria Pow-Wow.
While she will be dancing at the Pow-Wow, Breezy is also being recognized as the Rancheria’s outgoing Junior Princess for 2012.
Breezy has been the Junior Princess not only for 2012, but also 2011 and 2009.
Junior Princess is an honor that entails a lot of commitment. Breezy has already proven herself to be a determined self starter. She also sold 2,000 Girl Scout cookies this season making her the top seller for Madera county and being recognized as a Girl Scout S.S.S.S.H Girl (Super Sellers Secret Society Honors). She has also earned a Girl Scout Bronze Award for community service, and has started planning for her Silver Award project which will focus on childhood obesity prevention.
Breezy was among the Native American dancers that previewed their Pow-Wow dances on KMPH’s Great Day morning show.
The 13th Annual Table Mountain Rancheria Pow-Wow is June 7-9 and will be honoring Veterans, specifically the United States Air Force. This event is free and open to the public and begins at 6:00 PM Friday evening and goes throughout the weekend until 7:00 PM on Sunday.

Happy New Year!
I hope everyone had a great holiday season filled with family and lots of joy! I have enjoyed my winter break back at home, and I will shortly be back to UC Santa Barbara. Over break Hope and I were able to attend a Christmas party at the down town library. The kids were able to participate in crafts and take pictures with Santa, and of course read to the dogs! Hope is a great reading buddy because he never corrects the children’s pronunciation and is a great listener!
We were also able to attend a group visit to the Valley Health Care Center with other members of TDI (Therapy Dogs International) Fresno. Hope was able to socialize with his TDI friends and spread some holiday cheer to those living in the center.
I was very excited to finish my first semester in college. It was a very rewarding and somewhat relieving feeling to know finals were over and I would be returning to my family and friends. After some relaxation, I’m ready to go back to school next week and start my second quarter. Hope all is well and that there is a great year head of all of us!
