CARLYLE - The Stoughton Girl Guides held their windup and awards night at Cheryl Lake’s place on June 22.
Every Spark, Brownie, Girl Guide and Pathfinder from the club enjoyed a wiener roast with all the trimmings. Each girl brought a guest or two, be it a parent, grandparent or friend. They all enjoyed the beautiful evening, and this brought the group to 25 people.
After supper, the awards were given to each girl. Members received a certificate to show which level they had completed, along with badges and a goodie bag. They all received a camp blanket for the special badges to be sewn on.
It was at this event that the girls would find out whether they had successfully completed their level and move up to the next.
Cheryl Lake, one of the leaders and known to the girls as Rainbow Oil, welcomed new guide leader Krystle Zoer to the group.
Lake was excited to have another leader.
“The girls really like Zoer, as she is a lot of fun,” said Lake.
Zoer is known by the girls as Krystle Owl.
“I really look forward to September to be a part of this excellent group,” Zoer said.
Zoer has attended a few meetings to get the feel of things.
Another event the guides attended was on June 26. This was the district meet and was held at Woodlawn Regional Park near Estevan.
The Black and Gold district organized the gathering to give guides a camping experience. The girls were divided into three groups and would take turns at setting up a tent, making a fire starter and making a sleeping bag roll. They were also taught how to use a buddy burner and box oven.
Games and crafts were also part of the day, and campers had a chance to sit and relax.
The older girls took part in a kayak and canoe trip down the river, an experience they thoroughly enjoyed.
For the past two years this was not allowed due to COVID restrictions, so everyone was excited to hold this gathering and finally be back together.
The end of the day was completed with making camp hats and a fire.
Registration is open and can be done online. They hope to have fresh faces in the fall. The meetings are held at the Stoughton Apostolic Church on Wednesday and Thursday evenings. A time is yet to be determined.
