The month of February historically is a busy month for Scouting and Guiding. This is the month we celebrate the birthdays of our founders, Lord and Lady Baden-Powell of Gilwell. Both born on February 22.
Annual Family Potluck Dinner – Saturday February 24
This will be a family potluck dinner. Each family brings a main course casserole to feed 6-8 people. Please label the contents/name of casserole and indicate if there are any nuts or allergens in your casserole. Also put your name on the casserole dish and serving spoon and pick them up after the dinner. We will sit down for dinner at 6:00 so you can arrive any time after 5:30. There will be entertainment by the boys after dinner. We will have to conduct the business part of the Annual Meeting during this dinner as per Scouts Canada rules.
To help us with numbers (so we know how many drinks, deserts, etc to get), please register at Google Docs
