Scouts - February plans

Post date: Feb 04, 2014 7:10:50 AM

Monday’s meeting is a full uniform meeting and we will be working on our blast cars. If you took a kit home to work on your design, you must bring it to this meeting. Tim will have his band saw and an electric sander set up. Those who attended last week’s meeting will get first turn on the saw. The others can work on your design. Everyone will get a chance to do cutting. Does anyone have an electric sander? Sometimes called a palm sander. If you have an electric sander or manual sanding supplies please bring those along tomorrow.

Feb 10 – no meeting due to BC Family Day vacation

Feb 16 BP Church Service. We will be joining our sponsor congregation of Dunbar United Church to show our thanks for their ongoing, generous support - particularly our meeting location. This year marks 75 years of their sponsorship of our group! Scouts are asked to meet at the church at 9:15 am. Service begins at 10 am and we should be finished by 11:30 am. All families are welcome.

Feb 17 Baden Powell Banquet. Annual Banquet of the 25th Dunbar Beavers, Cubs, Scouts, Ventures and Rovers. 6:00 p.m. at Dunbar Heights United Church. There will be great food, fellowship, a brief AGM and a slide show of highlights of the past year. All youth & leaders should be in uniform. Each Scout is asked to bring a main course or casserole for 8. Please bring your food by 6:00 pm so the volunteers can do any re-warming or slicing. Mark any dishes with your name. This is a great event where the Dunbar 25th community pays tribute to the founder of the Scouting movement and a chance for kids from all the groups to see each other. As this is on our normal meeting night, we expect all Scouts to attend.

We will require 2 parents to assist in the kitchen with putting out food and clean up. Please contact me or Wendy Chee at
