Abigail and Aurora are twin 10 year old Girl Guides in the Southern Region. They have recently been awarded their Junior BP, love camping and attending State events.
Aurora and Abigail have accepted the role as Mentors for the next three years supporting the State Team by sharing their ideas and thoughts which will assist in shaping the decisions and the direction we will go in Girl Guides Victoria. VERY EXCITING!!!
One initiative that the Girl Guide Mentors have been working on is sending messages of thanks, support and encouragement to the many volunteers and impacted families within communities in the Gippsland region that have been devastated by bushfires. Please see Abigail and Aurora’s letters.
If Girl Guides or Girl Guide Units would like to participate please send letters (in one bundle) to arrive no later than the end of February 2020.
Attention: Aurora and Abigail

Please place each letter into an envelope and separate letters into one pile for volunteers and another pile for families. Please leave them unsealed as we may add something extra into them.
