Juniors – Parent Help Needed Tonight & Next Week

Christmas Craft, Gumnuts, Juniors, Parent Help, Program

Hi Junior Parents,

We are doing Christmas Craft tonight & making Christmas Card next week.

If you could assist with either weeks, we would be forever grateful.

We are “hot glueing” tonight…………

Christmas Card Making next week if you are creative……………

I already have 2 parent helpers tonight, but I think a 3rd pair of adult hands would be greatly appreciated & I have no helpers for next week…….

Remember, working with children checks need to be sighted, or better still you can register as a unit volunteer with Carrum Girl Guides at http://www.guidesvic.org.au

Thanks in Advance, Bickie

Hi All,

Junior Guides Term 4 2018 Program is available here

I have allocated a few weeks to have parent helpers during the night.

If you can help, please comment here or email/text me.

If you wish to help, you must let me know ahead of time as all parents who help must be registered (no charge – just technical stuff) with Guides Vic & have Working With Children Check plus Child Safe updates.

We are still planning – so this might change slightly……..
