Scout Note :: Important Reminders for November

Dear Scouts and Parents,

Just a couple of reminders for Scouts for the next week:

Friday November 22nd:
Annie-May’s Australian Scout Medallion Presentation

Scouts need to be at the hall at 7:00pm in full and correct uniform, ready for a run through of parade and the formal presentations, so we get it right! Each scout can have a small role during the presentation to support Annie, so it is important to be there to celebrate with her.
Scouts also need to bring a nice plate of supper to share.

 Parents and families are asked to stay for the presentation. This is a big night and is especially great for parents of younger scouts to see what their child can be working towards achieving during their time in scouts and encourage them to do so.

Wednesday November 27th:
Annie-May’s Amazing Aqua Adventures

Scouts need to wear old clothes, bring a change of clothes and a towel. Be prepared for fun!

Thursday November 28th:
“Project ICE” at Nichols Point Scout Centre 8:00pm
Corner of First and Cureton Aves, Nichols Point.

This is a drug information night "PROJECT ICE". This night is open to all families,  parents, scouts and friends, everyone is welcome and the more people who hear about the consequences  of this devastating drug, the more likely we are to help our children to avoid ever getting mixed up in it.

This will be a great night of information for all who attend and will be ran by Northern Mallee Community Partnerships- people who have seen the effects of the drug are trained in educating teenagers and families, and can provide the facts.

If you can, parents bring your teenagers; it is an hour presentation that could change your life.

For anyone interested in bringing younger children, this presentation is more designed for teenagers but please feel free to do so, if you are accompanying them.

5th Mildura Scouts intends to hold a similar information night early next year, but with the presentation focused more towards younger children.Education is the key to making sure we get the information out there to help prevent more destruction in the lives of young people.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Sheridan, John or Maaike.

Regards, 5th Mildura Scout Leaders.
