Malcolm’s October Adventures

Malcolm has been busy this October! He’s had a lot of fun visiting with girls and Guiders from around Lions Area. Here are a few of his favourite adventures:

Malcolm the moose visited the Panther Trefoil Guild meeting at the Sechelt Seniors’ Centre.  He enjoyed lunch and met quite a number of members.  He displayed immaculate manners and received a Crest commemorating Camp Olave’s 90th birthday from Linda Atkins our President.
