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.

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.

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.

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

The more we get together is a song that was sung in 2005 at a camp fire. very soon after wards as part of the Achieve : Leadership part 2 this song was one of a few taught over a a month at Guides in preparation for a short campfire.

The more we get together the happier we’ll be.
