On Friday, June 10, Sparks, Brownies, Guides, Rangers, Guiders and parents gathered at Pogey Park in North Thompson Provincial Park to celebrate their achievements of the past year.

The rain came too – just in time for the ceremonies. Out came the umbrellas, and the smiles and fun did not diminish. Some of the girls advanced to the next age group with several Guides planning on going to Pathfinders to re-instate that branch of Guiding.

Two of the Rangers graduate from high school this month but intend to keep their connection to the Guiding movement as they head off to different universities.

 

Jane Olsen, who has been a Brownie and Sparks Guider all year, was presented with her enrolment pin.  She enlisted the help of all of the girls surrounding her when saying her promise.  Tammy Redman was presented with a special pin to recognize her commitment to the Guides.  After all recognitions had been completed by Jean Nelson, the rain faded away long enough for everyone to gather around a picnic table laden with food. Everyone had just finished eating and games on the playground equipment were starting to resume, when the heavens opened. Within minutes the area was cleaned up, and a lot of cheerful, though slightly damp, kids and adults headed for home.
