The year-end celebration included a BBQ and bake sale, along with carnival games. The Sparks and Brownies led off the ceremonies, followed by the Guides, Pathfinders and Rangers. Family and friends watched as the girls walked across the stage and received their certificates and awards. Some 3rd year Guides earned their Lady Baden-Powell awards, 3rd year Pathfinders earned their Canada Cords, and the Rangers earned their Chief Commissioner's awards.
Each year, our District recognizes a girl from each branch to receive the Priscilla Shepley Camping Award. Congratulations to Gwen S., Kayla I., Sydney M. and Miranda C.
We also recognized girls who exemplify the values and goals of each branch. Congratulations to:
Lily H. and Robyn M. for "Being a Friend"
Jaime N., Libby D., Paige H. and Maggie E. for "Lending a Hand"
Katie B., Franziska Z. and Ashley K. for "Being Prepared"
Erin G. and Joyce K. for "Getting Organized"
Eleanor P. and Ariel M for "Being a Leader"
To honour the legacy of late 35th Guides leader Amy Hurn, we presented the annual Amy Hurn Camping Bursary to Rosalie S. This award recognizes a girl for being a keen camper and showing the spirit of outdoor adventure.
In addition, we had some special "thank you" awards for adult volunteers who helped bring special opportunities to the girls this year.
