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

Salad dressing

2 cloves garlic crushed

1 tsp whole grain mustard

2 tbsp lemon juice

1 tsp vinegar ( was recomeneded to have balasamic vinegar but we used what was on hand.)

1 tsp box honey (some one was allegic to honey so out came the brown sugar)

60 ml unsweetened apple juice.

1 tsbp extra virgin oil

Everything went into a whisk and was combined.  Mix was chilled and used on salads.  Makes only about 100mls per mix.  Therefore is an easy recipe for the Guides to learn and pass on.  A great way of using several steps to complete a multi level learning task.

Should Churchill have been named Hazelwood?

Many of the families around the Latrobe Valley that I have spoken too to this day feel that the naming of Churchill was an underhanded political move by the then Government of Australia which at the time did not listen to the people that it claimed to represent.


After two generations went to war believing that they were sent to protect their homes and families the returned Hazelwood peoples had not only first hand witnessed carnage and manslaughter but their home and harth had changed dramatically.

The faming and family culture that they had left had changed by the time those on the Hazelwood Honor Board had returned home.

People were maimed, broken or crushed not only from the fighting while in the service, but families suffered educationally, financially, in health and in every other way known and not known at the time The suffering was not contained to them who went but was occurring back at home where none had a voice to change what was happening. Those that may have spoken out were too worn out to do so.The suffering just kept lingering on.when they returned..

It was in this climate that the local, State and Australian Government of the time were seen to back big business and ignore those very people on the Hazelwood Honor Board who went away.

In this climate of distrust and apparent broken promises the vote for a town name was made. Churchill name is said to have won by a slim margin. Their are other towns, some in other countries, in the same error, that have a similar historical ‘vote’ for the name ceremony. People do not like change. Especially when the change involves their heritage, home or identifty. But worst still they do not like to feel cheated with issues unresonved festering away within them. The people of these areas still today carry a bitterness at the feeling of being cheated.

Craft days

What about having a craft day during the month.  Say a Tuesday morning at the office where we can start a craft day for any one interested in having piece and quiet!!! to make stuff.

I found out how we can make beads with polimer clay stuff.

Then if the people  think this is an acceptable idea we can might sell there stuff on the market stall once a month.  This idea was put forth by one of the members.

Found info on Fun Run

Looking on the Gipps Guides Site and found this advert.

Great idea… do we go with this?   What if when we do our Fun walk to the Pondage on 20th June 2010 we fundraise with this idea?

No this has been delayed until nearer the end of the 2010 year.

more Jewelery making days

Kira would like more days Jewelery making.  What about asking other Gipps Guides and others who are able to attend if they can make it on a week day?  Say a time / day that the Glendonald Child and Maternal Health Center has not got kids using it?  Make this once a month at first.  Then see if it can be developed from here!

This is what developing ones interests is all about…experiancing and experimentation.  Along the way the net work of people interested in one thing will grow, membership of Gipps Guides and other guiding things will expand. 

When any of this occurs you have the beginning of empowerment happening.  Go for it.

Heart Week and JRFHeart

 When organising activities and events it is good to sometimes have the events, activites and services aligned with other organisisations and their service to community sections.

So I asked Mary-Lou from Jump Rope for Heart the following Question:

……..  When is national heart week?  This may have some bearing on time /date factor

To Market …to market

  Idea from Rebecca was discusssed. After all present had input the following was decided:

  • To attend the Morwell Markets once a month ….on the Second Saturday of the month.
  • To share a stand with a family member already attending these markets.
  • To spend the time between now and January 2010 making/cleaning and packaging all products sold for and on behalf of the Gipp’s Guides.
  • face painting was brought up. 
    • Decission was to have more practice at designs and the spreading of the paint and marketing commitments before taking this on properly.
  • To make as business cards / tags to be included onto/inside the items sold.
  • To represent the Gipp’s Guides and wear Uniform.
    • Previously decided that moneys raises from any fundraising will pay for new Uniforms and Gipp’s Guide registrations [less the 10% profit that stays within the Gipp’s Guide account as running expenses for the Unit]
  • To take and fly the World Flag and the Gipps Guide Flag one only while there is a Gipps Guide officially on the stand.
  • To use this time as good Public relations for the Gipps Guides and Guiding in General.
    • Taking names of those interested and refering all the enquires to the Region Leader.
  • The Girl Guide Biscuits sold from now on will be sold as Out of Date and for $2.00.  Money for the Girl Guide biscuits is to go back to the District /Unit accounts it came orgininally from.  This is a Service to Guiding.  In this case to the Hazelwood and Churchill District.
