Alma Girl Guides hold enrolment

ALMA - The Alma Girl Guides and Pathfinders held enrolment night on Dec. 4 at the Alma Community Centre.  

Five new girls were enrolled as members of the 1st Alma Guide Unit. This year there are 14 girls from Alma and surrounding area.  

The theme was the “Famous Five” and the unit learned about the five Canadian women who were petitioners for the Person Case.

The Girl Guides have been working very hard on the Girl Guides of Canada National Challenge - Action on Poverty.  

This is a service project the Pathfinders worked on last year, collecting toothbrushes and toothpaste for the Centre Wellington Food Bank as the challenge was “hygiene.” This year the challenge is “hunger.”

The Girl Guides will be collecting canned goods for the Centre Wellington Food Bank at the Alma Santa Claus Parade on Dec. 17 at 2pm. The unit asks parade-goers to help out by bringing a canned good to the parade and giving it to one of the Girl Guides who will be pulling a wagon to collect the items.  

For more information about Girl Guides in Alma or the surrounding area, call Marlene Skerritt at 519-846-0328.
