Girl Guides

Girl Guides of Canada-Guides du Canada (GGC) stands for what it has always stood for - fun, friendship and adventure. GGC is a safe, accepting environment with diverse and exciting programs and activities that offers girls the chance to learn, grow and discover through age-appropriate programming. From sports, camping and science to eco-activities, fashion design and community projects, Guiding's girl centered programming has something for everyone. Guiding is bold, fun, energetic and gives girls the tools and resources they need to achieve greatness. Today's Guiding is for today's girls and women. For almost 100 years GGC has been the organization of choice for girls and women across Canada. While the world has changed drastically over the last century, Guiding has remained true to its ideals as a dynamic organization, changing with the times to reflect the needs and interests of today's girls and women. Guiding is more than crafts, camping and cookies. Some of the badges and keys girls work on today include Pen Pals, Family Heritage, Wood Works Germ Buster, Winter Great, Number Magic and many more Interest Badges. Keys include Brownies, Me, I Can, Active Living, STEM, Arts, Girl Guides, Camping, Living World and Community. For more information visit www.girlguides.ca or email 168thwinnipeg_brownies@live.com

St. Vital Art Group

History of St. Vital Art Group The SVAG was established in 1998 when Helen Anderson was asked if she would be willing to form and lead a group of painters at the St. Vital United Church. The original members of the group were: Helen Anderson, Helen Bircham, Joy French, Pat Main and June Trueman. Others that joined the group were Peter Baynton, Marion McCallum and Dorothy Naish. When the St. Vital United Church closed down in 2004, the group moved temporarily to the Windsor Community Club and eventually moved to its home at the United Church in Meadowood (UCiM). Membership The membership is limited to allow adequate working space during weekly gatherings. The membership fee is $50.00 per year payable to the Treasurer at the first meeting in September.  We have approximately 30 members and a waiting list of those wanting to join. Please leave your name at the Church office if you would like your name added to the list. Meetings The group meets in the Fellowship Hall of the UCiM on Wednesday mornings, 9:30am to 12:00pm, starting the middle of September and running up to the April Show and Sale. There is usually a two week December break. Shows and Sales In addition to its annual Show and Sale at UCiM in April, SVAG displays paintings at  Great West Life and at the Mona Lisa Restaurant during the year. Many of the artists also present their work at various other venues.
