The 54th Burnaby Mountain Brownies got off to a great start this year by finding a way to contribute to peace and friendship in our community. The group participated in the Reconciliation Art Project as part of the annual Walk for Reconciliation in Vancouver.
The Brownies painted rocks with messages of acceptance and friendship and then placed them as part of a large art installation in Strathcona Park which greeted participants where the walk ends.
It is great to see our girls taking acting to support better relationships among Indigenous peoples and all Canadians. Way to go, girls!
Most units in Burnaby Mountain district are having their first meetings this week. Some have already gotten started and have been announcing upcoming sleepovers, camps, outings, and events to kick off the year.
But it’s not too late! We still have spaces available in every branch, so if your girl is aged 5-17 Guiding is available for her in this community. We accept new members at any time, though we do recommend you sign up soon so you don’t miss out on the fun!
Experience the fun and friendship of Girl Guides where our mission is to enable girls to be confident, resourceful and courageous, and to make a difference in the world.
