    Apple Day

    Posted on September 27th, 2017 by Scouter Donna

    Apple Day is October 7, 2017.  All sections will meet at Richard’s Memorial Church at 9:30am Saturday morning.  Youth will be broken into groups of two or three and sent to varies locations around our area of East London.  We ask that parents or Guardians plan on staying for the duration of the morning with their child.  Apple Day would not be successful without the help of parents!  Some locations will require a car to get to, but other locations will be walkable from the Church.  As the morning progresses a Scouter will be around to check up on all youth and give you more apples or switch your location if needed.

    We usually wrap up around noon on Saturday and ask that everyone meet back at the Church to hand in their money cans and remaining apples.

    There will be hot dogs, chips, and drinks available for all those volunteering back at Richard’s Memorial Church.

    If you have any questions please contact your Section Scouter.

    Thanks and hope to see everyone there!

    First Scout Meeting

    Posted on September 4th, 2017 by Scouter Kevin

    We would like to start our meetings this week (September 7th), in order to draft a schedule of events that the Scouting youth want to participate in this year.  We have some ideas, but ultimately the Scouts decide what they would like to see the Troop do this year. So do some thinking about past Scouting events that you’ve been to and enjoyed, or other new activities that look interesting.

    For our new members – our meetings take place Thursday evenings from 6:45-8:30. We meet in the youth centre of Richards Memorial United Church 360 Edgeworth ave.  And don’t worry – the returning Scouts will bring you up to speed regarding what you will need to bring to future meetings, and what to expect ( Hint – Fun!).

    This year we have three Scouters. Scouter Doug, Scouter Kevin, and myself – Scouter Steve. Oh, and Scouter Ivan may stop by, too!

    If you have any questions, or concerns please feel free to reach out to us.
