We placed a geocoin in a cache during our bike hike.
We had Frank talk to us for a bit about geocaching and he helped us to find the cache where we were going to place our geocoin.
Here we are holding the geocoin. The geocoin has been minted by Girl Guides of Canada to celebrate the 100th Anniversary of Girl Guides in Canada. Coins were made available to Rangers and Pathfinders and Kabrena, our Junior Leader (Ranger), and Katie, a visiting Pathfinder, helped us to start our geocoin on it's journey.
You can track our geocoin's progress here:
64th Guides, Girl Guides of Canada 100 Years Geocoin
Here we found the cache!
We dropped off our geocoin here at the cache, to start it on it's journey.
Next, Frank retrieved the geocoin from the cache and he is going to place it in another cache for someone else to find. Remember to track its journey here:

We were also very excited to take part in several of the 100th Anniversary celebrations ~ Girl Guides in Canada turned 100 in 2010!! Thanks to the Great-West Volunteer Recognition Grant we were able to attend the Kick Off celebration at Casa Loma in January 2010 ~ the grant paid for us to go by bus! Thanks Bobby for organizing the bus!!
To celebrate our 100th Anniversary, the Ontario Council of Girl Guides of Canada introduced a special Centenary award ~ only 100 members would be chosen for this prestigious award. Two of our leaders received this award! The Great-West Volunteer Recognition Grant was used to pay the cost so all of the Unit leaders could attend the banquet where these awards were presented. At the same banquet, our Junior Leader received an Outstanding Youth Award as well!
As you can see, we fully appreciate the assistance provided by the Volunteer Recognition Grant and we thank Great-West Life for providing this program to their staff who volunteer and meet the criteria for the grant.

What's a Guider? That is the term used for a Guide Leader in Girl Guides of Canada. She does not have to be a Leader of just the Guide aged girls, she can be a Sparks Leader, or Brownie Leader, or a Leader at any level, basically any adult Member in Girl Guides of Canada.
The Guider of the Month Award gives girl and Youth Members the opportunity to nominate any adult Member of Guiding who has had a positive impact on their Guiding experience.
To nominate a Guider click here. Parents may help younger girls in filling out the required information.

The streets are crescents and they don't have sidewalks.
Anne, our treasurer, didn't think we were visible enough.
She thought we needed reflective arm bands.
We had a few safety vests donated to us.
But there were not enough for every girl.
So, this is what we did.
First, remove all the black bias tape around the vest - and save it, because we'll need it for the arm bands. That was Friday night.
Remove the cell phone pocket too, because it's in the way. And take off the velcro, too, and save it. That was Saturday morning.
That was Sunday's task.
And here is the result!!!
We did learn that we could have used more velcro on one half of each arm band to make them more adjustable down to smaller sizes. A few of the girls found that theirs was too loose. We'll add some more velcro to the arm bands before the fall cookie sales night. But - take note of Patti! We decided to put hers on her leg and it fit much better! :)

Girl Guides of Canada is launching You’re My Hero Girl Guides of Canada, a book by Girl Guides, for Girl Guides.
The book will celebrate all of the heroes that are important to you and is being produced in partnership with You’re My Hero Media.
Submit your hero story, and you could have it published in the book!
Every Girl Guide Member, from Sparks to Trefoil and alumnae, is invited to write and submit her hero story. (Sparks and Brownies can draw their story.)
Your submission can be about someone who has inspired you, challenged you, or who makes you feel like you can do anything – someone who is your personal hero.
It can be a friend, a relative, another Girl Guide Member, or anyone whose actions make a big difference.
Guiders, we need you to encourage girls in every branch to submit their stories/drawings! Click here or go to www.ymhggc.com/ymhgg for more information.
