November 4 Meeting

Please bring your membership pin on Wednesday if you have one.  420906_sYou’ll be getting a new one to represent your years in Guiding when we have our enrolment.

Movie Passes

Girl Guides of Canada, BC Council has received 14 Double Passes (28 movie tickets, total) for a special pre-screening of THE PEANUTS MOVIE, the latest family movie by Blue Sky Studios, and we would like to make them available to our girl and adult members on a first-come, first-served basis!


Charlie Brown, Snoopy, Lucy, Linus and the rest of the beloved “Peanuts” gang make their big-screen debut, like they’ve never been seen before, in state of the art 3D animation. Snoopy, the world’s most loveable beagle – and flying ace – embarks upon his greatest mission as he takes to the skies to pursue his arch-nemesis, The Red Baron, while his best pal, Charlie Brown, begins his own epic quest. From the imagination of Charles M. Schulz and the creators of the ICE AGE films, THE PEANUTS MOVIE will prove that every underdog has his day.
