Reading about the influence of Girl Guide movement

Once upon a time in a far off land lived five little girls. One girl was a Moslem, another was Buddhist, the third was Jewish, the fourth a Christian and the fifth was a Hindu. The girls were friends but they had to meet in secret because their fami­lies distrusted people who had cus­toms different from their own. Their families did not really understand that the girls liked each other and wanted to be friends.

One day news came about an elderly man in a far off country who had started something called Girl Guides, and now a unit was starting in their area. The five girls were very excited because they were able to join Brownie Guides together. They, like guides all over the world today, had different religions and beliefs but were able to meet together in friendship because all Guides existed happily together. -Their families were happy to see the girls together in Guiding because it was a good thing.

As the years passed the girls grew up and were young women when war came to their land. They were very afraid because people with dif­ferent beliefs were fighting with each other. Our five Guides were very troubled until one of them said “We are different but we are the same. We are sister Guides and we always help one another in times of need.”

And so, our five young women and their families promoted peace in their land and grew to understand and accept each others customs.

The five young girls in this story now have children of their own. Their children play together happily today, all because the Girl Guides came to their land a long time ago.

The white corner on our World Flag shows our commitment to world peace.

Whose responsible for what?

Hi Sue,  If a committee of management is appointed by DSE, they are appointed using  the Crown Land (Reserves) Act 1978 and there is no requirement for them to  have a constitution. However we do offer our committees of management a  template if they wish to create one to help with the management  arrangements of the reserve.  Please note, you will not be responsible for putting together a committee  of management - this is something that DSE does that may involve holding a  public meeting or calling for expressions of interest through local  newspapers.  Im still yet to receive any confirmation from the Girl Guides that they  would like us to commence this process. Until then, the hall is licensed  to the Girl Guides for them to use for girl guide activities. It is not a  public hall and is not available for community use at this point in time.  Thank you for providing me with a copy of Latrobe City Council's reserve  proposal. I ask that you forward your concerns to Council for  consideration.  Regards,     susanc@speedweb.com.au  16/04/2009 04:22 PM  To Tarnia.Leeming@dse.vic.gov.au cc  Subject Hazelwood South Hall
