Welcome Back


Hi 5th Mildura Scout Group Families,

I hope you all had a happy and relaxing Christmas and New Year and have re-charged your batteries ready for another hectic year. We are getting very close to starting the Scouting year with Cubs, Scout and Venturers all recommencing next week (see details below).

We look forward to getting to know you all better this year, and we encourage all parents to get involved in some way. It might be helping out on a night, a sleepover, a camp, or even sharing your expertise in your chosen field. You might even enjoy it!

We are fortunate to have an very active and enthusiastic Group Committee, and I encourage all families to support the committee as this will guarantee the continuance of a healthy and vibrant Scout Group.

2013 here we come!

Australia Day

Hello all 5th Mildura Scouters. Cubs, Scouts, Venturers, the whole lot!

As you all know, Saturday is Australia Day. There will be Australia Day celebrations all around, but 5th Mildura Scouts have been asked help out with the "Flag Raising Ceremony". This will be at the Buronga Wetlands (near the bridge) at 7:15am

Wear full uniform
Bring $5 for a cooked breakfast

This is a very cool and very Scouting thing to do.

Come down and celebrate everything Australian

See you there

Committee Meeting

Happy New Year Everyone!

As previously communicated a Committee meeting is to be held this coming Wednesday evening at the Hall at 7:00pm.

The Agenda is quite extensive so we will aim to be as organized as possible so we aren't there too late! :D

A special invitation is extended to all Group leaders and their assistants as much of the Agenda is pertaining to them and their input would be highly valued.

Thank you and see you there!

Kind Regard

Caitlin (Secretary)
