Bells of Peace Initative

bells of peace

Sun. Nov 11, 2018; 5:20 pm Tonight at the Area meeting I introduced a new initiative of The Royal Canadian Legion called Bells of Peace. The Legion is organizing their Branches, towns and cities to ring bells 100 times at sundown local time on Sunday, November 11. In Whitby, the celebration will take place at Celebration Square with a large bell being struck 100 times by members of the community. We have 2 spots for Scouting Youth who are a descendant of one of the 43 people named on the Whitby Cenotaph. This offer is good to November 2, so please put word out to the parents. You can contact me at bellsofpeace at whitbylegion dot ca .So, the question was asked tonight, who are the names on the Cenotaph. Link to Whitby Legion Bells of Peace information. Information regarding Bells of Peace can be found at:Canadian Legion page.

Scouting's Honours & Awards for Volunteers

link to scouts.ca thanks

Wouldn't it be nice to be recognized for your volunteer years, special efforts and hard sweat? We have a co-ordinator to help you with just that. Scouts Canada has a wide range of awards and pins to show thanks to its volunteers but it needs you to initiate the process. You can suggest a name, write out what you know about the Scouting efforts of the individual, then submit it to the committee for consideration. For more information about awards, contact Terry Eldridge.
