This week the 54th Burnaby Mountain Brownies celebrated their enrollment. This is a special day when the new girls “officially” become Brownies by making their promise and having a celebration. Of course, this year’s celebration looked a little different.
The group was outside, and a limited number of guests came (while keeping distance) to witness the special day. Although they couldn’t do some traditions — such as the leader taking each girl by the shoulders to “twist her and turn her and show her an elf” — they introduced others like giving each girl a camp blanket to display their beautiful crests (which will come in handy when they’re meeting outside on chilly autumn nights!).
The leaders did an excellent job making the area special with fairy lights and the thoughtful gifts for the girls. One of the parents even commented that it was kind of cool that all the regular meetings are outside right now because it’s like a little bit of camping at every single meeting. Way to look on the bright side!
