Girl Guides to register today (Nov. 17) or Saturday

Registration and uniform orders are happening this week at United Church

Registrations for Girl Guides for local girls aged five-17 are happening at the 100 Mile House United Church on Nov. 17, 2-5 p.m., and on Nov. 19, 10 a.m.-2 p.m.

Cariboo-Thompson-Nicola unit leader Tracey Lervik says it’s also the time and place for ordering the new uniform shirts.

All area Girl Guides will need to be there – even if they registered online at www.girlguides.ca.

The various Girl Guide groups meet weekly in 100 Mile House. This includes younger groups, such as Sparks and Brownies, as well as the middle and teen groups – Guides, Pathfinders and Rangers.

“Girl Guides is really important. It teaches empowerment, leadership and self-esteem. We also go on campouts, sleepovers and all kinds of other trips.”

Lervick adds Girl Guides can move up to the Rangers (ages 15-17) which provides national opportunities and scholarships.
