September is the time for new friendships and adventures to begin in Guiding. There is a “Meet and Greet” at the Optimist Hall (below library) on Wednesday, September 12, 2012 from 6:30 to 7:30 in the evening. This is an opportunity to meet the Guiding leaders in Bridgenorth/Ennismore and learn about the Guiding organization and upcoming activities. Bring your daughters!
In Bridgenorth/Ennismore there are two Spark Units (ages 5-6), one Brownie Unit (ages 7-8), one Guide Unit (ages 9-11) and a Pathfinder Unit (ages 12-15). In Lakefield there is a Spark/Brownie Unit as well as a Guide Unit. There are eighteen Guiding Units in total in Peterborough.
On September 29, 2012 the younger of our members will be fishing and playing games at our Brownie/ Spark Fun Day taking place at the Ontario Federation of Anglers and Hunters building. This is sure to be a favourite of the girls.
Guiding is alive and well in the area! The 2011-2012 census counted 530 girl and 139 women members of Girl Guides of Canada in Community 30. Find out how your daughter can join at www.guidesontario.org
