Happy holidays!

20 11 2010

We finished off the year with a campfire run by Shari as part of her Chief’s Challenge. Thank you to all the Guides, Brownies, Teddies and parents that attended. It was wonderful to see so many of you there!

After the campfire, the girls crowded around the campfire, eagerly toasting marshmallows to make S’mores. Meanwhile, the adults socialised inside the hall over a cup of tea. Thank you to everyone who brought a plate of eats. I’m sure that everyone appreciated the spread!

The Guides and Brownies also had a lot of fun with the sparklers that Linda’s mom brought. Thank you!

The campfire was a wonderful event! Thank you for organising it so well, Shari. We look forward to seeing you finish your Chief’s Challenge next year!

We will meet again on the 21st of January next year, and NOT on the 14th as I said in the letter. I apologise for the mistake that crept into the letter.

We will be having an invite-a-friend evening on the 28th of January next year. Start thinking about who you are going to invite now already! We’re going to have a lot of fun!


Christmas time is coming nearer!

So the Guides made Christmas tree decorations using polystyrene balls, pins, beads and sequins. The decorations turned out to be lovely!

We had intended to spraypaint the polystyrene balls gold, before decorating them, however we made an important discovery! Polystyrene does not like spraypaint. At least, it does not like the spraypaint that we had at the meeting. See for yourself!

Finally, I have some very important news to announce. Jamie, Linda and Jessica have all finished their entire Discoverer’s Challenge! Well done! I am very proud of you!

Jamie was also appointed as the Seconder of the Kingfisher Patrol. We look forward to seeing your leadership skills develop, Jamie.

P.S. On the 19th of November our end-of-year campfire will be happening. It is being organised by Shari as part of her Chief’s Challenge. All parents and siblings are invited to come join us. This is going to be an awesome event. Don’t miss out!
