401 Woodcreek Scouts

Our Woodcreek Scouts have started our year off with lots of fun and adventures already! Thankfully the weather has been amazing so far. The kids were busy selling popcorn , hopefully you were able to purchase some from us. Please save your bottles for us over the holiday season, we will be coming around door to door in the first part of  the year.

 

This is a call out that we are looking for a new Group Commissioner.

This would involve meeting once a month on the second Thursday with the Group Council and reviewing/approving activity application forms and emergency response plans (submitted by email) to make sure events are safe and meet Scouts Canada bylaws. This would be a great position for someone who has previously volunteered with Scouts and would like to do some volunteering to give back to the community, but not need to attend the weekly meetings with the youth. You would meet with our area support manager once per quarter. Time commitment 1-4 hours per month. If interested contact Scouter Tony at 403-281-1929.
