Each year on February 22, Girl Guides and Girl Scouts all over the world celebrate Thinking Day.

It’s a day when Girl Guides and Girl Scouts think of each other and give thanks and appreciation for the international friendship they find in the movement. The theme for this years celebration is: “We can save our planet.”

Here at home, several events have been planned by the local Girl Guides Association to mark the occasion.

On Friday, February 17, the Association will stage an exhibition at the Girl Guides Headquarters from 3.30 pm. Girl Guides from various companies will display projects highlighting environmental sustainability, calculating our ecological footprint, and more.

On Sunday, February 19, the annual Thinking Day Service will be held at the Kingstown Methodist Church. It will be held under the patronage of Dame Monica Dacon and will begin at 3:00 pm.

Some exhibits from Friday will be showcased there as well. All guides, rangers, brownies and guiders will assemble at the Peace Memorial Hall at 1:45 pm. The parade leaves at 2.15 pm.

On Wednesday, February 22, Thinking Day, the 6th Annual Brownie Public Speaking competition will take place.

Presentations of certificates to Senior Guides who have successfully completed the four year programme and are eligible for the Chief Commissioner’s Award will also be made.

Locally, the movement is celebrating Thinking Day 2012 under the sub-theme “Girls worldwide say, together we can save the planet.”
