It was a moving ceremony with only a candle-lit hall and the glow of the warm fire.

Past Guides were welcomed to renew their promises and to take part in the Horse Shoe of Taps which brought memories flooding back including the camping days remembered by past Guides Roslyn Trevaskis and Ann Tee.

The Guides especially thanked the members of the community who attended to support the enrolment service.

Congratulations to Daemonette Curran who was also awarded her Bronze Medal from Marj.

The Picnic Carry-all raffle was won by Janice Young of Tatura.

The Guides are looking forward to another cook-off on July 20 at Mooroopna Secondary College, in memory of past Guide Val McNabb, and hoping to bring a trophy back to Tatura again.

Our next fund raising venture will be the fashion parade including yesteryears’ Guide uniforms from Melbourne.

It will be a good opportunity to see how time changes things.

Tatura’s Velvet Emporium will be supplying the fashions for the girls to model.

A selection of jewellery from Bernadettes will be available.

An apron competition will also be held, so please bring along your favourite apron for display.

A prize of $50 will be awarded for the most original and a second prize of a surprise gift will be awarded for the prettiest apron.

Aprons can be homemade or store bought, it doesn’t matter.

Come along to support Tatura Girl Guides and bring a friend. If you were a Guide, dust off your badges and wear them on the day.

To help with catering please RSVP by July 4 to Phyll on 5824 2633.

Guides meet every Thursday from 5.30 pm to 7 pm.

Interested girls are welcome to come along and see if this is for you.

Guides learn to make decisions alone and in group situations.

For more information phone Cate Thomas on 0448 180 298.
