Annie Bannister District


District Commissioner - Jennifer
Camp Keyholder - Donna
  
Annie Bannister serves the communities of Chaparral, Legacy, Midnapore, Sundance and Walden. The district was created in 2016. Annie Bannister is named after the wife of Billy Bannister, foreman of the historic Bow Valley Ranche.

We have a very busy district with 38 dedicated leaders who generously volunteer their time and talents to provide our girls with the best experiences possible! We have three district events each year that the Pathfinders and Rangers plan: Christmas Party, Thinking Day event, and Advancement (a time to celebrate the amazing year we have had and to recognize the leadership of our Guiders).

As a District we have four Annual Events: Winter Dance, Thinking Day Celebration, Year End Event - Girls, Year End Event - Guiders. In June 2017, the 100th Pathfinders did a three-day trip exploring southern Alberta. The 54th Pathfinders travelled to the UK and Scotland in July 2017. The 56th Pathfinders fundraised for a trip to the Quebec Winter Festival in early 2018.
