Upcoming Meetings and Important Announcement

Happy World Thinking Day!

On February 26 and March 4, we are going on two fun outings!

On February 26, we are volunteering at the new location of the Greater Vancouver Food Bank. The Food Bank has moved to Burnaby (8345 Winston St), so please make sure you come to the right place! Also, our volunteer shift is earlier than our regular meeting time. Please arrive at the Food Bank by 5:50 pm, as we start at 6:00 pm sharp. We will end by 8:00 pm.

Uniforms and close toed shoes are mandatory for this service event. Please also bring some non-perishable food items to donate to the food bank. Some of their most needed items are canned beans, dry pasta, pasta sauces, canned fish, and canned full meals (such as soup or chilli).

Please also bring the Food Bank Volunteering Form (below) with you on Wednesday.

Also, as a reminder, on March 4, we’re heading out on another exciting outing to the West Coast Area Travel Talks event. We’ll post more information about that fun event in advance of March 4.

Lastly – and very importantly – effective March 11, we will be switching meeting locations to St Thomas Anglican Church as First Lutheran Church is no longer available on Wednesday nights starting in March! St Thomas is just a few blocks away from First Lutheran at 2444 E 41st Ave, at St Margarets Street – enter from the back basement door off of St Margarets Street. Some of you will remember St Thomas, as we used to meet there. Their renovations are complete, and the new meeting space is wonderful, so we’re very excited to be returning! We’ll send out more information about the move via email.

World Thinking Day Meeting

Tonight, we’re learning about what it means to be members of the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts (WAGGGS), and exploring themes related to equity, diversity and inclusion as we celebrate Thinking Day.

Part of our commitment to World Thinking Day is to contribute to the Canadian World Friendship Fund, which support Guiding in other parts of the world. We’ve opted to do a twoonie-drive this year, so encourage you to bring a townie or two, which we will contribute to CWFF on behalf of the 9th Pathfinders.


Urinetown Moved to Feb 12! Meeting @ the church this week!

Good news and bad news – our outing to see Urinetown: the Musical is so popular that Studio 58 couldn’t fit all of us at the show on Feb 5. Instead, we’ve moved the outing to Feb 12 and will be having a regular meeting at the church on Feb 5 instead!

Check out the Urinetown Calendar posting for updated information.

Also, if you’re now able to make it because of the date change, please bring forms and $$ back on Feb 5. If you can no longer make it, please speak with a leader! We can reassign your ticket and apply your $18 to a different activity.

This week, we’ll be doing the camp song (re)writing workshop we’d planned for January, and having a fun campfire! Bring your creative energy and singing spirit!
