We’re back online for real. Our website hasn’t had much love since 2015, but we’ve been quite active all this time and many things have happened including a couple of Jamborees. The Sea Scouts went to the Canadian Scout Jamboree … Continue reading “Starting a new year” →

We held our annual banquet and participated in a Founder’s Day service with our sponsor, St. Peter’s Anglican Church. The banquet went well and we all sang Ging Gang Goolie with and for the families just before dessert. All sections were represented at both events.
The Cubs made a beautiful wreath and two of our Scouts presented it at the Remembrance Day ceremony at Old City Hall. Also attending were Scouters Keith, Morgan, Paul, and Michael (1st Highland Creek).
Thanks to all the Beavers, Cubs, Scouts, leaders and parents who came out to help this year. All of your efforts are appreciated! Let’s strive for 100% participation next year.
I think in the end it was reasonably successful in spite of the Navy League and the rain. We don’t know yet how successful we were, but we went through at least one more basket of apples than we did last year. Here are a few photos from down at St. Lawrence Market this morning.

Not sure when it was to be used, but my guess was the 6 o’clock news. If anyone saw it, let us know.
This is our key fundraiser for the year and we need everyone to help out for at least one shift.
Youth will be doing the direct requests, but parents are critical to success – ensuring adequate supervision and supporting the youth in what can be a challenging endeavour for them. The section leaders are few in number and already put hundreds of hours into running program for your youth. Your help is needed to make the group work.
Wear your uniform proudly and visibly! If weather makes this difficult, please at least ensure that your scarf is visible. Wearing an undershirt under your uniform can help and a sweater is usually less obstructive of your uniform than a coat or hoody.
