Dear David:

I must say that I am most impressed with the members of the Ist Lancaster Park Girl Guides. Their initiative in creating anti-bullying posters shows, drive, creativity, & maturity. Girl Guide Leader IV the Lancaster Park Troop, Mrs. Katherine Aldo swung into action. Her idea of fighting the bullies by speaking up in a poster format was excellent. This allowed the Guides in her Troop to commisserate & honour their friend, a IX (9) year old girl who had committed suicide.

Taking up the United States initiative of "Operation Safety Zone", with a Canadian Detachment of Girl Guides was fabulous. The posters help the girls show how wrong bullying is & how they can help other students: both boys & girls (Girl Guides & not) learn that they should never start to bully. Also, what needs II be done II get out of a tough bullying situation.

Special kudos belong to Girl Guides: Viktoria Bradley, Tyra Clark, Ryleigh Louis, Ivy Best & all of their compatriots. As well as Ivy's mom, Guide Leader Pamela Best. These girls are a proud example of showing humanity & respect in action.
