Hoppy and The Blue Birds


One of these days, I’m going to post one of these old stills, and someone’s going to comment or e-mail with "That’s me!" or maybe, "That’s MOM!" I wish it could happen today, for here is Hoppy with two sets of Blue Birds, representing candy mint drives for 1950 and 1951. The goal was to "extend the Camp Fire Girls program to more girls in the Los Angeles area". The red, white, and navy blue uniforms signified the junior organization of Campfire Girls, known as Blue Birds. So there, now you know. All that’s left to do now is find these girls! The ones at the radio station are identified as, left to right, Martha Warn, Joan Stabler, and Patricia Van Hartesfeldt --- according to the caption, they "wanted Hoppy to have the first sample". Folks, I don’t care what’s gone on in these girl's lives since 1951 --- they’ve got to remember this day. The other photo, with Hoppy in costume, finds him with twin sisters Johanna and Karen Lindquist. Wonder if any of them have copies of these stills. Are the Campfire Girls still a going concern? Do they still sell candy mints? One of you out in L.A. should know. Check it out, or better yet, find those girls!

I'm looking for Campfire Girl's from our group here in Northern California. We had 12 girl's that started in 3rd grade and went to Hawaii for our senior year of High School at Alambra High School in Martinez, CA Selling campfire mint's helped me to go to a camp above Sacramento, CA every year.
If anyone know anything about Campfire Girl's and Blue Birds send me a line...
Thanks!!
