The Victor Scout Group was privileged again this year to be invited by the Holland Park-Mt Gravatt RSL Sub-Branch to host a BBQ for the community at the conclusion of the Anzac Day Service at the Holland Park Memorial.
Many dedicated parent volunteers arrived early in the morning and expertly wielded the BBQ tongs to successfully cook and serve 800 sausages and 15 kilos of onions on 40 loaves of bread, all by 8am! The sausages tasted great and we were also able to collect some donations from the public to support Victor Scout Group.
Predominantly, we like to look on the Anzac Day BBQ as a community service, rather than a fundraising activity. Still, it is nice to be able to report that, after costs, we raised $611.50 for our Group.
A huge thanks to our parent volunteers who planned, shopped, prepped, set up, cooked, served, collected donations and cleaned up! Thanks also to our youth members who helped with the donations collections, and represented Victor Scout Group so wonderfully on the day.
It was a great community atmosphere – a fitting way to pay tribute to those who have served our Nation.
