Bowen Scouts Sail Into Bowfest!

  Bowen Scouts proudly unveiled their custom built puddle duck racer at the Bowfest Parade this weekend!  Our Cubs and Scouts marched along side the parade float to hundreds of cheering spectators.  Many thanks to IRLY Building Centre for their generous support of materials for the project and to the leaders and Scouts who built the boat.  Visit the photo gallery for more Bowfest 2013 photos!  

A message from Cheif Commissioner Steve Kent

Please see below a message from Steve Kent, Cheif Commissioner and Chair of the Board of Governors of Scouts Canada. You can also view this message online HERE. February 13, 2012 Scouts, Scouters, parents and friends, It’s been a few weeks since my last message to you on our enhanced Child and Youth Safety initiatives, and I wanted to give you an update on our progress to date.   As you may know, on December 9, 2011, I spoke with the CBC’s Fifth Estate and announced a number of steps to underline Scouts Canada’s commitment to youth protection. These involved three key elements:

Bring a Friend

February 8th we are holding a “Bring-a-Friend” event. Our Scout Shop is continuing to offer an incentive to members that “Bring-a-Friend”. Each time a Scout brings a friend to a Section meeting, the Scout will receive a $5 Scout Shop coupon (redeemable for any Scout Shop purchase, no minimum purchase required). If the friend registers as a new member, he or she will also receive a $5 Scout Shop coupon, while the Scout who brought the friend will receive an additional $5 coupon. Coupons are valid until March 31, 2012. There is no limit to the number of friends a Scout can bring and the number of coupons they can receive. If your friend should have any questions, please feel free to have them contact me for details. We look forward to seeing your friends!
