Guiding units in Pincourt have had a busy couple of weekends.
Last weekend, girls from Sparks to Pathfinders participated in the Tim Hortons’ “Pitch In” event. The sky was grey with rain misting down on us once in awhile but the girls were in good spirits as they hunted for garbage to pick up in Bellevue Park. They worked hard and made an outdoor space as beautiful as it should be. Thanks to Tim Hortons for organizing a great event and for the hot chocolate and coffee to warm up!
This weekend the Pincourt Guides went on a trip downtown to the Grevin wax museum. We travelled by bus, had a picnic in Dorchester Park on a beautiful sunny day and then went on a short walk to the museum. The girls had a great time visiting the exhibition and said it was “a bit creepy” how real the wax figures are.
A small scavenger hunt had been prepared for them to answer simple questions on the different eras and events. It was fun trying out the props to take fantastic photos of the girls alongside the characters. How many of us can say we stood beside the Queen and had a conversation with her? It definitely is a great way to learn a little history!
Another walk outside brought us to St. Mary’s Cathedral where we enjoyed popsicles as we sat on the grounds and admired the surrounding architecture. Then a walk down the hill brought us to Windsor station where we had a short chat about the original Montreal train station and checked out the photos on display of the days gone by and train travel. We headed down the stairs and back onto public transit to make our way home from a great day!
