Famous Five District


District Commissioner - Bonnie
Camp Keyholder - Bonnie

Famous Five serves the communities of Bonavista, Deer Ridge, Deer Run, Diamond Cove, Parkland and Queensland. The district was created in 2009, during a reorganization of the districts in Calgary. Five districts joined together to create Famous Five, named in honour of the five Alberta women responsible for the Persons Case in the Supreme Court of Canada.

Our leaders are wonderful volunteer women who give their time, enthusiasm, and dedication to make all the differences in the girls' lives by planning year end events and our annual Carnival.

Our units worked on the Decoding and Mighty Minds Challenge, attended Brownie Camp Academy, held family skate nights, and visited senior homes (singing carols, doing crafts). They participated in Secret Santa for seniors; wrote thank-you notes to our soldiers; painted pottery; planned Halloween parties and camps; took martial arts, self defense, and art classes; visited the Inglewood Bird Sanctuary and Bow Habitat; and learned new sports such as Pickle Ball. Older units are working on completing their Lady Baden Powell, Canada Cord, and Chief Commissioner awards. Our District is currently working on a contest for designing our crest.
