scouting about

It was terrific to join with the Sherbrooke Forest District Scouts for their AGM and Presentation night for 2009/10.

Scout Leaders from across the region representing cubs, scouts, venturers and rovers came out to celebrate the past year of activities and achievements.

The Sherbrooke Forest District Scouts have had experienced some tremendous growth, across the district its been 7.9% compared with a state average of 3%. Its terrific to see children joining up for the scouting experience.

It was wonderful to join the celebration of the 25 year service award for District Leader Support, Denis Toogood. 25 years in a volunteer role is a wonderful contribution and Denis is certainly committed to the Scouts.
The Chief Commissioner's award was handed out to the 1st Belgrave South, 1st Kallista, 1st Selby and 1st Upwey groups to recognise growth of greater than 10% in the last 12 months.

I was struck by the committment and dedication of all the people involved with the Sherbrooke Forest District Scouts. They are passionate about our young people and teaching them skills they can use throughout their life.
