Brownie units are divided into smaller groups called circles. Each circle has a name like Pixies, Sprites, Kelpies, Fairies, Elves and many more. Once each circle has taken attendance, dues are collected, and the meeting opens. Each circle has it's own song, and they sing and skip around the toad stool.
