Grey Wolves Galore

Friday night was another special awards presention evening. We welcomed the Cub Leaders to present four Grey Wolf awards to ex-cubs who are now in the Scout Section. We bravely entered the jungle to see Elena, Kate, Riley and Tom receive the awards they worked hard to achieve. Bravo to you all for achieving the highest award in Cub Scouts.

Oh What a Night

July 21 was a very special night for Victor Scouts. It’s not every day a new Scout leader is invested. It’s not every day 4 new scouts are invested. And it’s very unusual indeed to have 4 blue cords presented. So when it all happens in one night on top of the Kangaroo Point cliffs with a beautiful backdrop of Brisbane at night, it’s a very special night. What a memorable occasion – congratulations to Sugeema, Seraphina, Kate, Ben, Tiernan, Laura, Ellie, Livi and Tash. 

New lights for the scout den!

images.jpegOver the July school holidays, our den lighting was upgraded to safety lights throughout both levels of the building. The new lights feature cages which will make it much safer for our scouts during their exuberant games. Dawson Electric completed the work for us over a couple of days and provided an excellent service for our group.
The lighting upgrade was made possible by the Lord Mayor’s Suburban Initiative Fund. The committee’s thanks go to Councillor Krista Adams for supporting the committee’s successful grant application.
We might go for chandeliers next time 😉
