Celtic bridal shower held in Del Mar

BY SHANTI MAYBERRY Sixteen women gathered in Del Mar on April 21 for a “HighTea” Celtic bridal shower to celebrate the engagement of Jennifer Mayberry and Joe La Manna, who will be married this coming December at the Del Mar Powerhouse. The shower was given by Jenny’s mother, Shanti Mayberry, at the family home in Del Mar. Ceremonies of the day included a piano concert by grandmother Patricia Hill, followed by Celtic bridal blessings and the old English custom of wishing the couple good fortune, happiness and health with special gifts from Joe’s mother and sister of “something borrowed, something blue, something old and something new.” The grand finale after the champagne Jennifer Mayberry toast and gift presentations was a hilarious skit performed by entertainer Toby Prager who played Geszelda, a very wild fairy Godmother. The couple lives in Missoula, Montana, where Jennifer is executive director of Firesafe Montana and Joe is completing his Ph.D in wildlife biology and climate change at the university. He is the recipient of a three-year EPA star fellowship grant for his research on migratory songbirds and Aspen tree decline. They plan to spend their honeymoon birding, snorkeling and hiking in Belize and Guatemala. Both Jenny and Joe are proactive environmentalists and hope to do their part in protecting the Earth’s eco-systems.

CV Girl Scout #3 in sales for Operation Thin Mint Girl Scout and Rancho Santa Fe resident Veronica (Roni) Nelson was this year’s Operation Thin Mint’s top cookie seller, clocking in at a whopping 4,082 boxes. Roni – along with Melissa Thomas of Rancho Santa Fe (3,009 boxes) and Caroline Sanborn (2,012 boxes) of Carmel Valley – were honored with other top cookie sellers on May 12, at Girl Scouts San Diego’s 11th annual Operation Thin Mint® Sendoff aboard the USS Midway. As top sellers (defined by those who reach 2,012 or more boxes sold in 2012), the girls had the opportunity to ride in a helicopter at OTM and join other VIPs on stage and at a special reception. Since 2002, San Diego Girl Scout troops and their cookie customers have sent more than 2 million boxes of America’s favorite cookies and countless notes of support to deployed troops serving in Afghanistan, Iraq, Africa, Japan, Korea, and the Persian Gulf, Western Pacific and Indian Ocean.
