Queen’s Venturer Ceremony

The QVA ceremony that we normally hold in the fall will be postponed until next year and we will be holding a double ceremony as we did a few years ago. Unfortunately, the LG’s schedule could not accommodate us this year.

CECuboree Planning Meeting

It may be fall, but we are already looking forward to June and CECuboree 2018!

Calling all Cub Scouters and Howlers. If you attended CECuboree last year and/or are interested in this year come on out to give input about what you want to see at CECuboree 2018.

We went through all the cub suggestions for a theme and the choice was clear……..”Nintendo” will be the theme for CECuboree 2018. Mario and the gang were the most requested, from Smash Bros. to Mario Cart.

Come on out for our Howlers Council meeting:
Blue Springs Scout Reserve
Saturday, Oct 28th
2-4pm.
Main Lodge Parking lot
14045 6th Line Nassagawaya
Milton, On

We will be helping out with the facility with a clean and hike as well as a great chance to review and brainstorm ideas to make CECuboree 2018 even better than last year.

Mark your calendars for CECuboree 2018, June 8-10.
