A SPECIAL ceremony was held last week for members of the Ardilaun Guides in Macroom to celebrate World Thinking Day.
Candles were lit candles to represent Guiding all over the world and each Guide took turns to read the chosen thoughts for the evening. Special prayers were said for all past and present members and for the ten million Guides worldwide.
Each member had been collecting money for the World Thinking Day Fund and they placed their money boxes around the map of the world to signify the spread of Guiding worldwide.
On the following Sunday, the Guides travelled to Cork to celebrate with Guides and Scouts from many parts of Cork in an ecumenical service held in The Lough Church.
They formed the colour party for the National Flag and their Unit flag and led all present in the re-affirmation of the Guide Promise.
