Reminder to bring in your membership pins

It was great to meet everyone at our first meeting, I know we’re going to have a fun year together!

As mentioned at the meeting, if you have a membership pin at home, please bring it to one of the next few meetings. 

Membership pins celebrate the number of years you have been in Guiding. The number on the pin indicates how many years you’ve been in Guiding. You get a new one every year. We’ll hand these out during the enrollment ceremony. 

It is tradition for members to bring in their membership pins from the year before so they can be redistributed to other girls. This helps to keep our costs down, so we can spend our money elsewhere. 

Welcome to the 2017/2018 Pathfinder Year!

The 9th Pathfinders meet Wednesdays in the basement at St Thomas Anglican Church (2444 E 41st Ave) from 6:45 – 8:30 pm. Enter from the back door, off St Margarets St.
The first meeting of the year will be on Wednesday September 13th. Please plan to spend the first 15-20 minutes at the meeting to meet the Guiders and ensure we have all of the forms and up-to-date contact information we need.
Please bring the following items to the first meeting:
  • Completed Personal Health Form for your Pathfinder
  • $50 for annual dues payment – cash or cheque payable to “GGC – 9th Vancouver Pathfinders”. Can also be paid in two installments of $25 (September and January). Dues help pay for unit basics such as pins and badges, craft materials, baking supplies, and thank-yous for special guests and presenters.
  • Forms and payment for the Southridge District outing to Taves Apple Farm on October 14. Check out the event listing for more information and to download forms.


A Pathfinder uniform is an important part of your Pathfinder toolkit. Uniforms are mandatory for public events as they help identify us as Pathfinders and members of Girl Guides of Canada. Pathfinders will need a uniform t-shirt, scarf, and pin tabwhich can be ordered online. We recommend ordering soon, as shipping and availability can be delayed at the start of the year.
See you on September 13th!
