Girl Greatness starts here

In 2010, Girl Guides of Canada is celebrating its 100th anniversary.

Dear Editor:

In 2010, Girl Guides of Canada is celebrating its 100th anniversary. Girl Greatness Starts Here, the theme for the centennial, showcases Girl Guides as the original girl-driven organization. For 100 years, we have been providing girls with opportunities to become the best they can be.

The celebrations start Jan 16 nationwide with the 2010 Launch Party in local Girl Guide units in Ponoka, Rimbey and Bashaw.

Our Vision remains the same: Girl Guides of Canada, the organization of choice for girls and women, makes a positive difference in the life of every girl and woman who experiences guiding, so she can contribute responsibly to her communities.

Our Mission is refocused: Girl Guides of Canada enables girls to be confident, resourceful and courageous, and to make a difference in the world.

Locally we will celebrate throughout 2010 beginning with the launch party. We are the theme of the Ponoka Stampede parade. There will be special events for the units and district to interact with other girls in the province.

Nine local girls with four leaders will go to camp in Ontario for 10 days in July to join Mosaic 2010, which promises to be a life-changing experience with extraordinary activities and day trips. To date 3000 girls are registered to attend.

Tamara Huzar,

Guide leader,

Wolf Willow district
