Did you know that Girl Guides have been in Yukon since 1914? As we prepare to celebrate our 100th year of guiding in Yukon, we have been busy planning many special events.

There will be a poster launch on Oct. 11 from 5-7 p.m. in the Yukon government building foyer. On Feb. 1 there will be the launch of the museum exhibit documenting our 100 years in Yukon. Also on Feb. 1 there will be a launch of an update of our book 75 Summers we published for our 75th Anniversary in 1989. This launch will be at the museum opening. We have created a beautiful crest and a Friends of Guiding pin that can be purchased throughout the year.

With all the exciting stuff happening, it is a great time to be a member of Girl Guides. You can come and be a leader or a girl member. Our programming is great for building up a girl’s self-esteem. It lets them be creative, build friendships and help the community. With guiding, girls can belong to something bigger!

As an adult member you can become a unit leader, a council member or a member at large. We provide training and support and many great opportunities. As an adult member, you can apply for scholarships for school and international trips. Girl Guides are all over the globe and some of our trips take us from Canada to Mexico, England and beyond.

Now is the time to come in and join us. Just call the office for more information 867-667-2455 or if you are in the neighbourhood, pop in to the T.C. Richards Building at 302 Steele St. (the log building on the corner of 3rd and Steele). The office is open Mondays, Thursdays and Fridays from 12-5 p.m. You can also go to our national website at www.girlguides.ca for more information and you can register online.

Come and join us and be a part of something big.

Kerri Scholz

Area Commissioner,
