Camp Fire Girls in the 1950s

I attended Laguna Honda School in the l950s and went to Camp Fire Girl meetings on the 1200 block of 8th Avenue. It was one of the best times in my life. Mrs. Keys (or Mrs. Key) was the owner of the home where we met (she was Very Old!) and a younger mom would actually be the leader. A Mrs. Johnson was one of our leaders. (Her daughter was Susan, I think.) Does anyone remember this--any former members out there? We had great Saturday field trips to Strawberry Hill in the Park. And sometimes -- oh what a treat!! -- we were taken to the Children's Playground (I remember the music was exciting at the Playground). Which house did we meet in? Do you have any memories of Mrs. Keys or of Camp Fire in general?
