Two of our Guides needed to organise a ceremony for their Chief’s Challenge.
We started with Air. Kristen had organised a ceremony of hope and peace. Everybody got a piece of paper to write a message on and attach it to a helium balloon (biodegradable).
We all took our balloons outside to release them (except for two that escaped and stayed on the roof of the hall).
Next we moved on to Earth, with a tree-planting ceremony.
The tree was a September Tree. Samantha read a poem about trees and then the work of planting began.
We only had half an hour to complete Fire and Water. First the girls used candles to make an invisible message appear.
The message involved water balloons and throwing them to each other, with predictable results.
All in all, a memorable evening.
