Merritt’s Girl Guide unit brightened St. Patrick’s Day for local seniors by delivering an assortment of creatively coloured leprechaun cut outs.

“We have 17 Local Girl Guides ranging from 5-17 year of age,” said Guide Leader Susan Doncaster.

“We like to do something special around a few holidays for our local community. In the past year we did Valentines for the local seniors, we did thank
you postcards for some local veterans. We decided why not St Patrick’s Day?”

The Girl Guides handed out their coloured leprechauns ahead of March 17 so that seniors would have the opportunity to display them in their homes on the day, which honours Saint Patrick, the foremost patron saint of Ireland.
