On World Thinking Day held Monday, the Pathfinders, Guides, Brownies and Sparks gathered at the Alliance Church for activities which included singing the song I Can Make a Difference and making a craft out of beads and origami designs.
Dougie Edwards, District Commissioner of the Starlight District, Girl Guides of Canada, said they have 89 girls from Morinville and Gibbons and hope to expand to Legal, Redwater and Smoky Lake. They have their fire gathering on Wednesday night at the fish and game pond.
World Thinking Day was started in 1926. The annual date of Feb.22 was chosen as the date because it was the birthday of both Lord Baden-Powell, founder of the Boy Scout Movement, and Olave Baden-Powell, who was World Chief Guide. World Thinking Day is a special annual day when Girl Guides and Girl Scouts around the world think of each other and express their thanks and appreciation for the international movement. There was also to be a display representing Mexico, India, England, Switzerland and Africa.
