Hazelwood and Churchill District Guide Leaders Minutes For May 2010

Hazelwood and Churchill District Guide Leaders Agenda For May 11th 2010

Meeting started :


Message from District Leader:

Good on you Team

When the ‘best’ is expected from people, when standards are set that guide people and when recognition of their efforts are given people will rise to the occasion, do greater than even they believed possible, want to duplicate what happened and carry on with their endeavours. Other people will want to be involved in sharing in the positively flowing energy. The want become a need. Membership grows and further still the things that ‘happen’ generate more things.

Can we keep up?

I believe that every one of us can keep up and enjoy sharpening our talents and natural gifts, in the process taking each of us to greater heights.  Guiding allows us to Aim High and Look Wider Still.
