Guides eager to get going with new year of activities

Plans underway already for Christmas and beyond

About 60 girls and Guiders enjoyed a fall evening for the start of a new guiding year at their kickoff event Oct. 11 at the Rod and Gun Club.

All age levels played a few games to burn off some steam and then took part in a sing along organized and led by the older Pathfinders and Rangers around the campfire followed by hot chocolate and Tim Bits.

“It was a slightly higher turnout than last year, due to the fact that our Brownie unit, ages 7 and 8, has filled to capacity at 28 girls,” said district commissioner Stella Vallee, adding that unfortunately there’s a wait list and organizers hope to recruit more guiders for next September to open a second Brownie unit.

“We are always proud to be a part of Remembrance Day Parade & Service, look forward to singing Christmas Carols for residents of Terraceview Lodge, and taking part in Food for Friends.

“We will welcome, with a gift basket, the first baby girl born closest to Feb. 22, 2018, in recognition of our Founder’s Birthday, celebrated throughout Guiding and Scouting, as Thinking Day.”

“Units are busy planning sleepovers, outings and anything else that spells F-U-N for the girls, ‘cos if it ain’t fun, it ain’t guiding!” Vallee said.
