RSL president Robert Mathieson officially handed the flag over on behalf of members last week.

‘‘Tatura RSL welcomes the opportunity to sponsor an official Guides flag, so the Guides can carry and display their flag with pride,’’ he said.

‘‘At the Australia Day ceremony, the RSL noticed the Guide flag was a little worse for wear, so we approached the Guide leaders to offer them a replacement flag, thus extending the hand of friendship from the RSL to the Guides.’’

Guides spokes woman Phyll Bramley said they were thrilled to receive the donation of the Guide World Flag from Tatura RSL members.

‘‘The Guides and leaders were honoured to march on Anzac Day and carry their beautiful new flag,’’ she said.

Mrs Bramley said the Guides would also like to thank the Tatura community for supporting their garage sale on May 3.

‘‘We are now another step closer to having our hot water and stove installed,’’ she said.

‘‘A special thanks to Foodworks, our sponsor for the barbecue on the day, and also a big thanks to the Lions Club, who fitted our equipment room with shelves, which was most appreciated by the leaders and Guides.’’

Mrs Bramley said on July 10 at 1.30pm the Guides Fashion Parade showing Guide uniforms from yesteryear (from Melbourne) to today, would be on.

‘‘Bernadette from The Velvet Emporium will fit out our local girls with her fashions, so bring along your aprons, any design for a fun competition. There will be a $50 prize for the most original and a surprise gift for the prettiest,’’ she said.

Tatura Girl Guides meet at the Guide Hall, Albert St, Tatura, on Thursday nights from 5.30pm to 7pm.

‘‘Girls aged between six and 15 years are welcome to attend. Tatura Guides are going from strength to strength, so come along and join the fun,’’ Mrs Bramley said.
