Friday, February 19, 2021 – BC Council of Girl Guides is announcing their World Thinking Day celebration: GUIDING LIGHTS ACROSS BC – February 22, 2021!
They have invited Sooke to celebrate with BC Girl Guides in our community as they shine Guiding lights in support of girl empowerment. They share, “local landmarks across the province (like stadiums, bridges, structures, and buildings) will help us celebrate by lighting up in “Guiding blue” after dark on the evening of February 22. Locations in every region of BC have agreed to participate, so you can go admire the blue Guiding lights shining in your area that evening!”
Blue lights will don Sooke Municipal Hall as we recognize the many members of our community who are actively involved in Girl Guides community-inspired programs and initiatives, including Mayor Maja Tait who is an honorary member.
Every year on February 22, Girl Guides celebrate World Thinking Day, a day of international friendship. “It is an opportunity to speak out on issues that affect girls and young women, celebrate the founding of Girl Guides, and be connected to the 10 million members around the world who are part of the Guiding movement,” shares Girl Guides Canada.
