As we start a new Scouting year welcome to all members both returning and new! There are skills to be learned, adventures to be had and friends waiting.
We are not yet in a position to offer Beavers for the 2018-2019 year. To date, no one has stepped forward to become a leader in this program. We need at least 2 volunteers before Scouts Canada will allow us to operate the program. We must maintain a ratio of 1 adult to every 5 youth and practice good risk management skills so no adult is left alone with a child other than their own. If you think the program is worthwhile for your child, please consider volunteering. Training is available online and Terri Briggs is knowledgeable on the program elements and is willing to assist any volunteers.
Some of the activities we are working on include:
Apple Day - October 13th. We are asking every family to volunteer for 2 1 hour shifts.
Haunted Forest - October 27th - this is a Town sponsored event and a fundraiser for the group
Remembrance Day - as the Legion is our sponsor it is important to give back by supporting this event. The date of the parade is November 11th.
Santa Claus Parade - November 27th - we will be submitting a float and are looking for ideas for decorations. All Cubs and Scouts are asked to consider walking the parade. It is approximately 3 km.
HAUNTED FOREST IN SHEPPARD'S BUSH
October 27, 2018
Calling all members of the group to help set up the forest starting at 10 a.m. for a spooky evening. Volunteers needed for set up and to man various scenes during the evening for the general public. Always looking for the loan of decorations that are battery operated. We will also need assistance in packing up the displays on Sunday morning. There will be a sign up sheet for parent and youth participation in setting up the event, manning the event, and the take down of the event. Wayne, Terri, Fiona, Jim, Ross cannot to do it all by themselves. Please consider offering to help.
