Australia Day in Melbourne

Australia Day celebrated as a State Event in Melbourne. This event has the Guides carrying a large Australian Flag. For this the day is primarily aimed at the BP’s, Queens Guide’s and OBPs presented the previous year. The years that I took Guides down who had achieved these Peak Achievement we had a ball. At the end of the march there we were in Government gardens joining in the festivities.

Full Uniform is worn. Take drink bottles full of water and sun hats. Make sure you are well fed before the ceremonies begin.

Melbourne quearies for membership.

Samar knows of other people who are from Melbourne.  They too want to join into the Olave Program. The basic procedure is to get in touch with touch with the Melbourne office via a Cluster representive and go through there channels.  However yes invite people who are interested in what you are doing up to the meetings, activites, events and services that are happening. 

Word of Mouth is terrific advertising.  Interested people share ideas and better yet you experience and join in with a wider range of activities, services and event.  You then have more opportunities to net work your self, skills, and knowledge.

Australia Day Jan 26th

Australia Day celebrated as a State Event in Melbourne. This event has the Guides carrying a large Australian Flag. For this, the day is primarily aimed at the BP’s, Queens Guide’s and OBPs presented the previous year. When in Melbourne for the Australia Day event make sure that you have eaten well before the ceremonies begin. After which there is a Parade down Elizabeth Street.

As a Hazelwood and Churchill combined event the places have altered when necessary.  They have been behind the Hazelwood and Churchill shopping Center, Churchill Saloon, at Gaskin Park and at the Churchill Public Hall entrance. This event is open to all aged Guiding personal and members. On Australia Day the Gipps Guides or Leaders have been asked to face paint as an activity while people eat and catch up with friends. Other times there have been odd jobs like the handing out of flags, song sheets, readings, hoisting the flag / colour party [with Scouts].

Sometimes we go into Morwell’s Kurnot Hall for the Australia Day Ceremonies and Presentations/ Citizen of the Year Awards.

Full Uniform is worn. Take drink bottles full of water and sun hats.

Churchill Lions make sure there is a full breakfast available.
