Brownies, Sparks enroll

Port Hardy Brownies and Sparks return after hiatus with enrolment ceremony last week.

PORT HARDY—The 1st Port Hardy Sparks and Brownies held their enrolment ceremony last week at Eagle View Elementary School.

Parents and families came out to see the 18 young girls receive their badges and sashes as official Sparks and Brownies.

Each recited her promise and made the special sign before the Browies performed a short play of the Toadstool Story.

The ceremony marked a return in Port Hardy after a hiatus for both groups due to a lack of volunteers. There was no Sparks group in the town last year while the Brownies make a return after several years’ absence.

The newly reestablished groups will take part in this year’s Santa Claus Parade, Dec. 1, collecting socks and mittens for needy children along the route.

The groups meet every Tuesday evening at 6 p.m. in the Eagle View Elementary School gym and are a part of Girl Guides Canada.

To volunteer or to become a member contact Debbie Maundrell at 250-230-0125.
