With the approach of their 25th Anniversary, now is the time to record Rainbow (and the pre-Rainbow history of Bunnies) while memories are still reasonably fresh and artefacts exist. One thing I would be especially keen to collect is information on opening/closing ceremonies - when Rainbows first started, there was no national opening/closing song, and it was up to units to create their own songs and ceremonies for meetings. Some have been recorded in music books, but now is the time for an enthusiast to collect others . . .
Almost more vital is to record the history of Bunnies - programmes, publications, badges and uniforms are all now rare, and potentially valuable - and it is important to record information about them before they are forgotten . . .
