Large Enrollment In Guide Troop

(By Herald Correspondent)
RED DEER-- The largest enrollment of girls in the guide movement in Red Deer took place recently at the Scout-Guide hall when 16 girls were enrolled into the 2nd Red Deer Company. Mrs. Kerry Wood introduced the division commissioner, Mrs. W. Graves and Mrs. G. Turner, Mrs. M. Boutet, and Mrs. M. Hives, leaders.
Mrs. Graves enrolled and presented Guide pins to Beth Bury, Patsy Davis, Pat Donahue, Ruth Elvey, Lynn Gehrke, Harriet Hall, Pat Harper, Willetta Johns, Joyce Knowler, Jean McEachern, Carolyn Pollock, Gayle Sackville, Margaret Stanway, Hallie Mae Wilson, Karen Swaney and Wendy Wright.
MRS. GRAVES stressed the benefits to be received from Guiding and the help Guides could give the community from training received in the movement. She told the mothers that each Guide had shown a live interest in order to pass her tenderfoot tests. It was now up to the mothers to keep this enthusiasm alive by showing interest in their daughters work, assisting the Guides when possible, and supporting the local association.
Gloria Shipley presented a cup and saucer to Captain M. Turner, who has transferred from the city. The leadership is going to miss Mrs. Turner, whose efforts during the past two years have done much to aid in the rapid expansion in enrollment of Brownies and Guides here.
