Velia Nicholls visited Townsville recently, and as part of her visit, attended Aitkenvale District’s 50th Anniversary. In her own words:
Saturday evening saw the 50 year celebrations of Aitkenvale as a District and the surprise presentation to Irene Burrows of her 50 years Leadership Award. Bravo Irene! The Region came together again to join in the celebrations. Generations of Guides sharing and reflecting together. Congratulations Aitkenvale. The evening program unfolded under the expert guidance of MC Marion MacGregor Burgess. There was singing and dancing (well movement) and we were treated to a parade of our uniform history. More fun, laughter and another Guide food festival finishing a great night with a magnificent campfire! The very talented Julie Adamson led us. Thank you many times over.
It was a time for State Standards, old uniforms and lots of memorabilia and memories!
