STOUGHTON - For the second year in a row, the Stoughton Girl Guides held their trefoil and bake sale on May 4 at the Apostolic Church in Stoughton.

Leaders Cheryl Lake and Krystle Zoer were busy setting up tables and getting their girls organized before the crowd of people arrived.

Every guest was welcomed at the door with a smile and greeting by the guiders. A small fee collected will help the club with extra items that are not covered through the organization. A beverage and a home-baked snack were served.

A wide variety of baked goods were set up at the front of the building for all to view and select for what they wanted to take home. The popular Girl Guide cookies were available.

As people sat at their tables to socialize, guiders came around to ensure that beverages were filled at all times and the snack plates did not go empty.

Southern Horizons Area commissioner Suzette Dann from Regina was in attendance with long-time leader Judy Helfrick, who has been involved with guides for over 40 years.

Dann takes care of all the districts from Saskatoon and to the south. Lake is the Black Gold district leader for the southeast corner, and she invited the commissioner to attend.

All the baking that was offered for sale was created by the girls and leaders, and there was a broad selection.

Lynn Young applauded the service and snacks, and they did an excellent job on preparing the venue, which looked very bright.

At present the Stoughton Girl Guides group has seven members and from now until the end of June, when the season wraps up, girls can come out and attend for free to see if this is something they would enjoy come fall.

According to Zoer, guides are a wonderful way to make new friends, make crafts, learn camping skills and receive badges for the work completed.

These badges are sewn onto a camp blanket to be used when they go to district camps.

In June, they will have a district camp for one night, to show the girls how to set up a tent, prepare a fire safely and cook on an open fire.

Lake and Zoer hope to see fresh faces in the coming weeks to show the girls how much fun the Stoughton Girls Guides can be.
