About 60 Cubs, Scouts, Venturers, Rovers, leaders and family members attended the 9th Brunswick Scout Group’s Annual Report, Awards and Presentations dinner in the Scout hall on Saturday, 26 August.
The ARAP, as it is known, is a very special evening where we hear about all the exciting things that have been happening in all sections of the group, and to celebrate our achievements.
It is also a great opportunity to thank our leaders for all the work they do providing fantastic scouting opportunities for our youth members.
A highlight of the evening was the presentation to Jude Angove of his Scout Medallion Badge – a fantastic achievement, and the first time this has been awarded at 9th Brunswick.
In her report to the ARAP, Group Leader Sally Smith said while it had been a challenging year with the retirements of several leaders and movement of youth members in and out of sections, this had settled down and numbers were building well.
Youth members from all four sections have attended group, district, region, state, national and international events. This is a great credit to the leaders who have carefully prepared their youth members for these events.
Twenty-one Cubs will be attending Cuboree at Gembrook in October, which is two-thirds of the pack. Scouts have also attended every event on offer in the district, region and state. The Kingsford Smith Rover crew has a high profile in the region.
With 2017 being the ‘Year of the Group’, 9th Brunswick has held two group-wide events: Harmony Day and ANZAC Day.
