Rimbey Girl Guides and Brownies plan to do their part to help out the town in which they live.

On Mon. Nov. 4 after school, the girls will gather at the town library to sort through the books that are remaining from the book sale.

Spines and covers will be removed from the books which will then be hauled out to the recycle depot.

Guide leader Gail Stuart said the community service project is a good one for the girls and will be beneficial to the town and the library.

“A lot of people think Guides is just about selling cookies and it is definitely a lot more than that,” she said.

Information on the web states seven million Canadian girls and women have been involved in Guiding in the last 100 years.

Throughout its history, Girl Guides of Canada has prepared girls to meet the challenges that they face in their lives head on. Whether it was girls learning to bandage wounds during the First World War or girls today working on their anti-bullying badge, Guiding continually evolves to reflect the needs and interests of contemporary girls and women. Today, Guiding’s innovative programming is helping the next generation of Canadian girls become confident, courageous and resourceful leaders.
