Surviving the pandemic was no easy feat!

Bound to shore for the duration we prepped for journeys to come.

Once quarantine was lifted, the younger Scouts explored many lands.

The crew gathered together at our JOASIS for a Friendsgiving gathering.
We laughed, enjoyed a meal, shared our favorite moments and toured the living gallery exhibition.

Venus Taillant

Venus had quite the year! She began her senior year at Pepperdine University as the Vice President of marketing and merchandise for her sorority (Alpha Phi) as well as the creative director and founding member of the Pepperdine Real Estate Club. After spring semester, her and two friends bought one-way tickets to Europe. With intentions of seeing Italy, they hit the Amalfi coast, Florence, Rome (+ the Vatican) and Milan before deciding to see more. By the end of the trip they had visited Switzerland, Monaco (for the Grand Prix), Nice, Cannes, Lyon and Paris. Shortly thereafter, Venus went to Wisconsin and Chicago with her yorkie-mixed sidekick Luna. There she watched her boyfriend of six years Marcus Chiu play baseball for the Miami Marlins. This fall she moved from Malibu back to the Bay, to be closer to family. On November 23rd at 12:07 PM she surprised the world and welcomed a beautiful baby girl. At 7 pounds 4oz, 20 inches Aura Moon Chiu was the missing piece to their little family. To top it all off, in December she completed her Integrated Marketing and Communications degree at Pepperdine University. Go Venus !! We look forward to celebrating at her commencement ceremony April 2023.
