2nd Wellington Scout Group puts the ‘out’ into Scouting! The Group was formed in 1991 to provide the youth of Fall River, Fletchers Lake, Wellington & Grand Lake, a co-ed opportunity to experience activities missing at the time in the local area. The outdoors is an essential part of Scouting and through Scouting children will learn all sorts of fun and challenging things like wilderness survival, hiking, camping and First Aid. Camps are organized, trips are planned, but most of all the youth have fun! Check out the individual section pages and use the contact buttons if you want more information. New members always welcome!
***The Annual Scouts Popcorn Campaign is now running!!***
This is 2nd Wellington biggest fundraiser – please support us! Money and Orders to be in by November 7th
Uniform – The Scouts Canada Uniforms have all been redesigned by Joe Fresh and are available now! Check out the Scouts Canada Uniform Page for more information. Youth can continue to wear the old uniform until summer 2014.
Our Group Committee consists of volunteers who oversee all activities, for Beavers, Cubs, Scouts & Venturers. They complete the registrations, organize security checks and co-ordinate fund-raising to ensure 2nd Wellington Scout Group continues to thrive in our community. We are always on the lookout for corporate sponsors, fundraising opportunities and volunteers. If you are interested in any of these activities, please contact our Group Chairman by selecting ‘Chairman’ on the Contact Page drop down. Thanks!
Registration is ongoing. Come along to one of the meetings and complete the registration forms there. Fees for the 2012-2013 Scouting year are $125.
2nd Wellington Scouting completed their Fall Highway Clean-up on Oct 10, 2012, with 25 Cubs, Scouts, Parents and Leaders participating. We cleaned up most of our 5 kilometre section of the #2 Highway between the Wellington Firehall and Grand Lake.
On Oct 15th the Beaver Colony did their part and along with help from many parents picked up litter around the Holland Rd school. It was amazing to see the enthusiasm of the youth as they took on both these challenges.
Exciting news, our Tim Horton’s coffee cup count is down considerably to only 155, from 286 in the Spring 2012, and our all time high of 428 in the Spring 2011. Yes, we count the cups.
More exciting news, several parents remarked that the roadway was in better shape with less litter than at the last couple of clean-ups. Let’s hope that both these are continuing trends.
We are planning our Spring 2013 clean-up for April, again our Adopt-a-Highway section of the #2 Highway, and the Oldfield School grounds for the Beavers.
Thank-you to all the parents , youth and leaders for making this, once again, a successful event.
