North Vancouver Indian Arm Girl Guides 95th year mother- daughter celebration

May 13, 2005

By Catherine Barr


It was a true blue (and pink and brown and green) girl's night out last week as North Van's Indian Arm District of the Girl Guides invited young ladies aged 5 - 15 to a very special mother - daughter banquet. Celebrating 95 years of guiding in Canada, the night included buffet dinner, individual awards and one great big birthday cake to share.

Due to server capacity, you will not be able to access or click through to the larger photographs. With over 250,000 unique visits each month, our site would quickly exceed the amount of memory needed.

If you would like to receive a copy of a photograph, then please send an email and enclose the details of the event, the date, the name, the photo number and the names of the people in the photograph. Also, for security reasons, I prefer not to email copies of pictures to anyone other than the people who are actually in the photo. Thanks.

A giant 95th birthday cake was the centre of attention for all the girls who know what it means to lend a helping hand.
Special recognition was given to retiring district co-commissioner Nancy Morrison. Daughter Heather Kincaid, who is now a Ranger, has been in guiding since she was a Brownie.
