THE 146th GUIDES
NEW VIRTUAL MEETINGS
Each Wednesday, until further notice, we
will be meeting online using Zoom from 7:00-8:00 pm. Please download the Zoom App (www.zoom.us).
Please note that GGC has some guidelines for online meetings - as much as possible please try to use a plain background, like a wall, to avoid other people coming into camera view. Guiders will also follow these Guidelines and disclose if anyone not related to Guiding is in the room.
WANTED: Blog Writers
Our blog needs some new stories about what has been going on this year. Any guides that are interested in submitting content for the blog should contact Guider Leslie.
Blog writing will help with work towards various Girls First badges.
Website Under Construction!
Over the coming weeks we are working on updating the website with more current content including:
- Upcoming events
- New photos
- New Girl Guides of Canada Branding
Welcome to the 146th Guides!
And welcome to our unit website! This website is designed as a resource for our Guides, their families and the Guiders alike. Please visit the OUR UNIT page for information about ordering uniforms, our Guiders and our unit policies.
We will send out a weekly email to Guides and their families with upcoming events and reminders. Check back here often to keep up to date with our unit news and events.
We post all permission forms, maps, and kit lists for everything we do on the EVENTS page.
We take pictures through out the year and post the pictures on the GALLERY page of all of the girls with signed photo release forms. Girls and Guiders are encouraged to contribute to our unit BLOG. There you will find craft ideas, recipes and our collected thoughts on everything and anything to do with Guiding.
Please note that the EVENTS and GALLERY pages are password protected and that a new password is issued to members of our unit at the start of each Guide year.
We hope that you find the website a useful tool and visit often. If there is anything you would like to see added to the site, please let us know!

Harry Potter Meeting
Our virtual meeting this week will be Harry Potter/magic themed. We are encouraging Guides to dress-up, if they would like to, in magic attire (robes, hat, wand etc. either as a generic magician or Harry Potter specific).
To help with dressing up, we have found a quiz online that determines which Harry Potter "house" each girl would be placed in. We are asking that Guides complete the quiz before the meeting, and then colour in the tie below in the house colours!
We will be discussing their thoughts on the results of the quiz during the meeting.
April 1, 2020
During our virtual meeting on Wednesday, April 1, 2020, we will be sharing our work on the Engineering Challenge! The activities for the challenge can be completed by each guide individually at home before the meeting. All of the details for the activities is included in our newest blog post! We ask that guides complete as many of the activities as they can before the meeting. If some activities cannot get done in time, they can be shared at a later date to still earn the badge.
The following are the documents required for the challenge:

First Guide Meeting!
We are super excited to start another awesome Guiding year!
Please complete a new H.1 Health forms for your Guide. Click on the link below to print and complete the form at home, or you may complete the form during our first meeting. Please read and initial the revised pick up policy.
We will collect dues at tonight's meeting. Dues help offset the cost of the badges and craft supplies, as well as the parties planned by the girls. Dues for 2019-2020 are $30 and are payable by cash, cheque or online bank transfer (please code the last four characters of the account as DUES).
Girls should wear uniform to this meeting and every meeting (unless otherwise specified on the calendar). If you were a Brownie, please wear your Brownie uniform until your Guide uniform arrives. Traditionally Tenderfoot Guides (a Guide who has not yet been enrolled is called a Tenderfoot) do not wear ties until after enrollment. Please keep your new Guide ties and badge sashes at home until the night of our enrolment ceremony!
GGC is launching a new uniform for both girls and Guiders this fall. Girls (and Guiders) may choose to purchase a new uniform shirt or continue to wear the old shirt. All GGC uniform, regardless of age, is always acceptable to wear. So continue to rock those vintage uniforms or sport the newest style, it's totally up to you!
* Parents and Guardians please note that there is no parking in the church parking lot. Please park on the side streets around the church instead. *
We look forward to welcoming our returning girls back and meeting our new Guides!
