Ballarat Girl Guides – Member Statement

Juliana ADDISON (Wendouree) (16:43): Congratulations to Ballarat Girl Guides on celebrating 100 years of guiding in Ballarat. It was wonderful to join with Catherine King, the mayor and generations of Ballarat Girl Guides to celebrate their centenary in our community.

Congratulations to long-time leaders Rosemary Garth, Dawn Fischer, Sandra Ballard and Margaret Littlehales, who were presented with special Adult Good Service Awards by Girl Guides Victoria state commissioner Linda Kors. The awards recognise their extensive voluntary contributions to guiding over many, many decades.

Over the last 100 years society has changed but so have Girl Guides. However, the guide promise made by all guides – to do their best, to be true to themselves and develop their beliefs, to serve their communities and Australia, and to live by the guide law – remains a constant. Wishing the Girl Guides much success.
