Did you know that we have four (4!) Yukon Guiders learning how to be trainers? And that within a year all Yukon Guiders will have easy access to the many wonderful trainings our Organization offers? Thanks to Alberta senior trainers Jan and Donna for travelling to Yukon March 27-29 to make this all possible. Here is the training team (L-R): Natalie T, Nancy D, Donna, Kerri S, Jan, Erin D.
…. but the hiring committee is hard at work and we should have a new Office Manager soon. If you need to pick something up or drop something off, please contact Nancy or Kerri and they’ll help with access.
We’re looking for Girl Guide memorabilia to add to the display that will open at the MacBride Museum this fall to celebrate 100 years of Guiding in the Yukon come 2014. We’re especially interested in copying your Guiding photos not only for this display but also the history book that is being produced. Please contact Jennifer Moorlag (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Cheryl West (email@example.com) if you can Lend a Hand!

Program Adviser Erin Dixon designed and organized the production of patrol emblems all Yukon Girl Guides are encouraged to try out: a Fireweed and a Raven! Only a few of the birds and flowers in the official GG patrol emblem selection are found here alas, so this will help bring Yukon flavour to Girl Guides here. To order, contact the Guide Office at 667-2455. Thank you, Erin!
