On Saturday, February 18th, over 70 Brownies and 20 Guiders joined in the fun at our 2nd Provincial Superhero Academy Day held at Mountainside United Church in Westmount. As part of earning the Be You Challenge, the girls got to make superhero shields and capes and build a personal self-esteem tree which they could take home. Brownies also gave back to the community by preparing St. Patrick’s Day tray favors for the local Meals on Wheels and bringing in non-perishable food items for the local food bank, highlighting this year’s National Service Project to help end poverty.
The day would not have been complete without a visit from Superhero Darwin, a magnificent great horned owl, who captivated the Brownies by showing off his very own superhero bird of prey skills.
The afternoon ended with a rousing zumba class so that the girls and their leaders could burn off some energy while keeping their superhero bodies strong and powerful.
Our closing was a campfire led by a wonderful group of Rangers who were also very involved in the planning and preparation of the Event.
Congratulations to all the graduates…until the next Superhero Academy!
A shout out to my very own superhero team Donna Collister, Gigi Cordeiro, Nancy Shaw, Holli Drum, Helena Green, Lisa O’Brien and the Lakeshore and Valois-Dorval Rangers, without whose wonderful help and imagination, this day would not have been possible.
