The Junior Auxiliary of the Anglican Church was an organization somewhat similar to the Girl Guides or Canadian Girls in Training (CGIT), but with an emphasis on Anglican values.

These are posted here because young girls from Leslieville took part in this organization and the play, including the Tolchards.
