Hazelwood and Churchill (Victoria, Australia) local Girl Guide information noticeboard.

How Linden became a suburb of Tawa.

Linden and Tawa, North Island, New Zealand needed to have a common name to be called.

Put it to a vote they said. Voting was believed to be fair.
A climb up to the peak was organised for a picnic lunch to occur.
And when was the vote done? From what I hear as those from Tawa went past the voting booth.
So Linden came under Tawa.
Just goes to show what lobbying and dirty politics can do generations later ha!! This system did not stop at just the Tawa and Linden votes. Others towns and in other countries had the same system of ‘fair’ voting established.

Girl Guides learning to have a voice at 2009 formal meal planning

Through out all Guiding levels members have opinions.  These opinions may directly affect them, future generations, or help with a problem that is seen.  Having a voice leans a hand to many aspects of a Guide members life.  So having a voice for the things like the yearly formal meal is important.  The Guides are eating at this activity.  So the  ‘return’ on having a voice is something anticipated and experienced relatively quickly.
