Administrative history

The "Honeybees" CGIT group associated with the United Church in Grande Prairie was led by Rosamond Wilson ("Honey") from 1960-1966 . Many of the girls had been Explorers previously and were now junior high school age. Over the next six years, under Rosemond's leadership, the girls formed a very cohesive bond and lasting friendships. The Canadian Girls in Training is designed for girls 12-17. They pledge " under the leadership of Jesus to seek truth, know God, serve others and thus with His help become the girl God would have me be." The group wore destinctive "middies" and regular meetings included devotions, activities and plans for community service. The group that graduated in 1966 included Leslie Murray, Lennie Lawrence, Linda Froggatt, Sharon Crough, Wendy Simpson, Marilyn Taylor, Margy Kujath Judi Barschel, Patty Wigelsworth, Donna Yakimchuk, and Margaret Edgson. Other members appearing in the records over the six years are Lynne Park, Maureen Ockert, Pam Donald, Karen Covey, and Inge Knells. A reunion of the group took place in 2001 at the home of the Wilsons in Sidney, BC.
