Trefoil Guild is a membership activity for women over 30. In many cases, Trefoil Guild members have been members of Guiding in a variety of roles for many years and join the Trefoil Guild to keep in touch with the organization and each other. Members who are actively Guiding are invited to join a Trefoil Guild in addition to working with a unit.
