The Bahamas Girl Guides Association successfully pulled of their first “Mother and Daughter Tea Party” this month,
More than 300 mothers and daughters from eleven Girl Guides groups from districts across New Providence attended the event at Government House on May 31.
In addition to enjoying a variety of savoury and sweet delights, hot and cold teas, the girls enjoyed a fashion show where Brownies, Guides and Sunflowers modelled the latest children’s fashions from the Sweet Pea Boutique and Calypso Kids, accessorised with Harl Taylor Bags.
The Brownies also used the event to complete the requirements for “Hostess”, “Party Planner”, “Photographer”, “Entertainer” and “Cook” badges. The girls and young women along with their leaders spent many hours learning and teaching the skills required for the successful implementation of such a large-scale event.
Governor General Dame Marguerite Pindling, who is the patron of the Bahamas Girl Guides Association, as well as Girl Guides President Anita Bernard and Chief Commissioner Sonia Adderley were also in attendance.
Leja Burrows, deputy chief commissioner and chairperson of the organising committee, thanked the commissioners, leaders, parents and the girls for their contribution to the success of the event.
Special commendation was given to the Scouts who provided valuable assistance.
