This Week 2018-Feb-27 Combined Units & parents BBQ

“Young people must be involved in the planning and review of their program if it is to be relevant to them.”
In the Venturer Scout Section, youth members should be leading the way, setting the agenda, and running the meeting, with adult Leaders supporting and providing guidance only when necessary. In this Section there is only a small amount of leadership provided by adult Leaders, as the youth are completely autonomous in most capacities.

Tonight is “What is Venturers?” an introduction.
Come along an find out about the Venturer section; what makes it different from the Scout section, some of the expectations, how the badge system operates, how the Unit Council operates, and ask any questions that you have about Venturing. You’ll also get to meet the Leaders from the multiple Groups currently meeting together. We’ll even cook up a BBQ with some classic Scout sausages in bread.

LOCATION: 1st Eltham Scout Hall

This Week 2018-Feb-20 恭喜发财 Gōngxǐ fācái

恭喜发财 Gōngxǐ fācái : Shrove Tuesday collides with Chinese New Year

Shrove Tuesday 🥞
Shrove Tuesday was Tuesday 13th February 2018. Shrove Tuesday, otherwise known as Pancake Day, is traditionally a feasting day before the start of Lent on Ash Wednesday. Shrove Tuesday always falls exactly 47 days before Easter – with this date changing every year.

Celebrating the year of the Dog 🐶
Chinese New Year, also known as Spring Festival in China, is the most important traditional holiday in China. Chinese New Year 2018 is on Friday, January 16th, and welcoms the year of the Dog which is the eleventh in the 12-year cycle of Chinese zodiac sign.

What happens when Shrove Tuesday collides with Chinese New Year? You’ll need to come along to find out … I’d expect to see pancakes and dragons.
