Remembrance Day at Whitby Cenotaph

Scouts will be marching in the Whitby Remembrance Day parade Monday, Nov 11. All participants are to be in full uniform and will gather on the east sidewalk of Byron Street South between Colborne and Dunlop by 10:00 am. Will need time to organize everyone before the parade is called to, “Fall In” at 10:15 am. If you are planning on showing up and want more info.
The Legion has invited us to join in the parade to the cenotaph. This requires some pre-assembly training to ensure the children are orderly, to respect the sombre mood of the event. Download the PDF detailing the assembly instructions. All are welcome to join in the ceremony at the cenotaph.

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.
