Class of 1962
Visitors From Canada
Nine Canadian Girl Guides had a brief but event filled visit to Bourne last week as guests of Buzzards Bay Senior Troop 84. They drove down from Bracebridge in Ontario.
Miss Mary Hallett was the Canadian Girl Guide leader in charge of the group; Mrs. Norman Rosewarne, also a Guide leader, was Miss Hallett's assistant for the trip. The nine Girl Guides who made the trip were from Miss Hallett's company and Mrs. Rosewarne's company.
Members of Troop 84, who were hostesses for the guides, were Carolyn Jackson, Carolyn Matthews, Sandi McKenzie, Kathy Robbins, Charyn Nowling, Ann Wagner; Betsy Ziegler, Betty Harrington, and Gale Selig, and their leader Mrs. Vernon McKenzie.
The Guides camped at the Bourne Scenic Park. The first day they toured the Cape from Bourne to Provincetown and ended the day by having a swim and supper on Nauset Beach, Orleans, where they met some Orleans and Chatham Mariners.
On the second day they drove to the Massachusetts Girl Scout Camp, Helen Storrow, on Long pond for a visit in the morning. In the afternoon they toured Otis Air Force base where they met some Wing Scouts of Troop 109 and then they visited the Aptucxet Trading Post in Bourne. That evening they had a swim and supper at the home of Mrs. Tom Nowling, troop committee member of Troop 84, Buzzards Bay.
On the third day they started out for Boston, stopping at Plymouth Rock and the Mayflower. After they reached Boston they took a bus sightseeing tour of the city and then did some shopping.
They were very courteous and nice and spoke excellent English. The Bourne girls had a wonderful time meeting them and going places with them. They brought Canadian friendship pins and Guide penants, and other Guide gifts as presents and swaps for the Cape girls.
