Guider and District Commissioner Linda Hamelin is proud of her district’s Under the Sea advancement ceremony! How did they do it?
It was a lot of work to fold, paint and fluff 164 pieces of coloured Kleenex and put them onto mermaid necklances. Then I sewed 11 mermaid skirts for the girls advancing. One week the Sparks and Brownies coloured sea creatures and then we glued them onto a plastic table cloth that looked like water. We then had a blue table cloth on the floor with shells and rocks.
These are the words that one of our Spark leaders came up with to say as the Sparks were walking in the water to be greeted by the Brownie leaders, and then Brownies put the mermaid necklaces on them:
As you swim through the pathway of shells and coral that represent the learning and experiences you have done through Sparks, now swim into the deep blue sea of new beginnings and wonder. We wish you all the best with the new friends and have lots of fun in Brownies.
