We don’t know what we are doing yet (because of COVID)…but we are going to do SOMETHING to celebrate our 75th Anniversary as a Scout Group and Ken’s 50th Anniversary as Leader.
Please sign up so you can be kept up-to-date on what we are planning. (Promise we won’t send out too many emails)!
Whatever we do, everybody will be made welcome!
Born and raised in the Douglas Park Community, Ken knows these streets & it’s people very well. As a child he got to know the families in the community through the local Scouts group, which he joined at 8 years of age, his Father’s store : Cambie Cycle & Electric & through his involvement with the United Church. Many of you will recognize Ken’s kind face and his friendly disposition, which leaps off the photo. In 2018 Ken received The Governor General of Canada – Sovereign’s Medal for Volunteers for his work with the United Church, Scouts Canada and Camp Fircom. Well deserved!
This year, Ken is celebrating his 50th year in a leadership position with the Scouts : The 46th Chown group, which is also celebrating it’s 75th year. While speaking of his experiences, he proudly spoke of how… “Scouting breaks down all the barriers of life.”. He shared stories of how people, both youth & adults, who may never otherwise meet become fast friends, of travelling to other Countries to attend the Scout Jamborees where they get to experience different cultures & realize as much as there are differences, we are very much the same.
