New Girl Guide unit formed in Port Bland­ford

The Packet (Clarenville) - - Editorial -

A new unit of the Girl Guides of Canada was formed in Port Bland­ford in Septem­ber.

The 1st Clode Sound Unit held is en­roll­ment cer­e­mony on Nov. 25, sign­ing up 13 new girls as mem­bers, and four girls that joined from Clarenville units.

The girls started the cer­e­mony with their tra­di­tional open­ing and then sang “Camp­fire’s Burn­ing.” They gave their Guid­ing Prom­ises and were pre­sented with their cer­tifi­cates by the area com­mis­sioner Susie Hawkins.

This fall girls and leaders have spent some time learn­ing the pro­gram; the leaders have been com­plet­ing on­line cour­ses. They have also started the new “Girls First Pro­gram,” fo­cused on “Ev­ery­thing she wants to be.”

The mem­bers have had their cookie sales in the fall and will also have an­other in the spring. They par­tic­i­pated with the Royal Cana­dian Le­gion Branch 48 with the “Bells of Peace” ac­tiv­ity, which saw young peo­ple place Cana­dian flags at head­stones to hon­our those that served in the First World War.

The unit also par­tic­i­pated in the lo­cal Re­mem­brance Day Pa­rade and cer­e­monies.

The girls made or­na­ments to con­trib­ute to the Port Bland­ford Se­niors Cit­i­zens Christ­mas Party.

It has been a busy and re­ward­ing fall for the 1st Clode Sound Unit. The peo­ple of Port Bland­ford are happy to see their youth ac­tive in the com­mu­nity.

The Unit would like to thank ev­ery­one who helped get the unit started, es­pe­cially to the Royal Cana­dian Le­gion Branch 48 for their con­tin­ued sup­port.

The unit cur­rently has 17 girls from kinder­garten to Grade 7 and is hop­ing older girls from Port Bland­ford and sur­round­ing area will be in­ter­ested in join­ing as well.
