Girl Guide Crisis

Girl Guides of Canada - Fernie, BC - Need Leaders

Found on Facebook:

“Girlfriends!
Girl Guides in Fernie is in trouble. Both Guides and Pathfinders have closed for registration because there are NO leaders available. None. I have taken on a new role and will not be leading guides or pathfinders.
Fear not 12 years and up, I can be your Trex leader. However, Guides has to happen! There’s no rule that says there can only be two (but there must be at least two). Maybe 6 of you could take it on and spread out there work. I’m very sad for the girls excited to come back as we cannot even register them until leaders are committed. It can be a lot of fun! I’m even taking a group of girls to England in two years! Fun! I would be happy to support anyone who wants to step up to this position. I’d hate to see it gone.
You do not need to be a parent either. Some of the very best leaders have no children.
Please let me know if you can help, I’ll get you pointed in the right direction.”

Fairy Creek Falls - Fernie, BC - easy short hike

It’s been a while since I’ve walked to Fairy Creek Falls and when some friends visit from Vancouver and you only have 2 hours of free time, it’s a great choice with great rewards.

Art Expo Voting Begins

The lucky winner of the most votes gets $200! I could use that money to buy loads of groceries that would last about 3 days in this household.

Place your vote here and send that person home from Wapiti Music Festival (where the original artwork will be on display) with a couple bags of groceries!
