It was an exciting night for Kincardine Guiding as the annual advancement ceremony was held Tuesday (June 8) at Kincardine Baptist Church.

Among the celebrations was the presentation of the Canada Cord, the highest honour in Pathfinders, to Christiane Ritter. To earn the cord requires extensive work in community service, leadership, program and citizenship. Christiane also received her citizenship certificate and pin. She and Rebecca Dadson will now become Rangers, working on that program, beginning in September.

Another major accomplishment is the Lady Baden Powell award, the highest achievement in the Guides program, which has been earned by Isabel Tuck. She was unable to attend the ceremony.

In Brownies, two girls - Jenna Row and Monica Woods - moved up to Guides; while in Sparks, four girls - Cheyanne Woods, Allison Pope, Makayla Roberts and Savana Palominos - moved up to Brownies.

Besides the advancement, the event included the presentation of badges, gifts and some "much-needed" camping accessories for the Pathfinders. A rousing campfire followed and then refreshments.

Kincardine Guiding resumes in the fall. Check the website, www.wix.com/kincardine/guides, for information about registration.
