IT DOESN'T matter your age, a Girl Guide never forgets the memories made during her time with the club.

Keppel Coast Girl Guides Hayley McCann, Anna Brown and Nikeeta Simmons are perfect examples of the bonds and friendships made.

The KCGG will host a Gala Evening on October 8 to showcase Girl Guides to the community.

KCGG's Trish Brown said in a world where society was so technology dependent, Girl Guides gave the younger generation a place to explore outside of that.

"It lets them get outdoors and be around nature, to make things together and do things they normally wouldn't do,” she said. "It's empowering and gives them a positive sense of self.”

A pastel artwork by Jo Beatty will be auctioned at the event. The proceeds of the auction and the entry fee will be donated to the State Good Turn 2016, the annual fundraiser undertaken by Girl Guides Queensland to support community projects and groups in the state.

"The funds raised this year are for drought relief in the Western communities,” Keppel Coast district manager Catherine Simmonds said.

The community is invited to attend and view artwork by local indigenous artist Julienne Fisher, Jo Beatty and works that the Keppel Coast Girl Guides completed at a recent music, arts and drama camp.

"If you were a Girl Guide or Brownie in the past, we would like to invite you to come along and share any photos, past uniforms, badges, sashes, pow-wow mats and memories at this event,” Catherine said.
