Sup­port­ing Guide move­ment

The Tatura Guardian - - News - — Phyll Bram­ley

Are you won­der­ing what Tre­foil Guild is all about?

The Guild is an out­let for guid­ing for adults aged 18 years and older who have made their Scout or Guide prom­ise, to give ser­vice to guid­ing, scout­ing and the com­mu­nity.

Meet­ings are held on the sec­ond Thurs­day of each month; all new mem­bers would be warmly wel­comed.

At the present time, Tre­foil Guild­mem­bers are work­ing on the project Days for Girls, which in­cludes col­lect­ing all hy­giene prod- ucts for girls and women in moun­tain vil­lages in Thai­land and Laos — such im­por­tant gifts that we take for granted.

Tre­foil Guilds sup­port Guides in many dif­fer­ent ways, such as help­ing with pro­grams, pro­vid­ing his­tor­i­cal in­for­ma­tion and fi­nan­cially sup­port­ing the cost of buses to en­able all Guides to be able to at­tend camps and dif­fer­ent ac­tiv­i­ties held for guid­ing.

Fol­low­ing the GV Guild’s August meet­ing, mem­ber Wilma Wisely taught the group the art of mak­ing beau­ti­ful and creative greet­ing cards us­ing silk thread, beads and much more. Those in at­ten­dance all en­joyed this im­mensely, prov­ing you’re never too old to learn with every­one hav­ing a go.

Fu­ture events mem­bers and friends will be at­tend­ing in­clude: September 14 at 1.30 pm — a meet­ing at Wunghnu Cafe´, GV Hwy; September 17 at 10 am — annual lead­ers and guides church ser­vice at the Church of Christ, cor­ner Nixon and Co­rio Sts, Shep­par­ton; Oc­to­ber 12 — a sur­prise venue pic­nic trip, one hour west of Shep­par­ton.
