Scouts to shine in 2009

Under the theme, ‘Lets rise and shine in 2009,’ Cayman Scouts celebrated a week-long series of activities.

A service in observance of Scouting Movement Founder Lord Robert Baden-Powell at John Gray Memorial Church on Sunday kicked-off the start of Scout Week.

Chief Scout, Governor Stuart Jack, and his wife Mrs Mariko, along with members of the Girls Guide also took part in the service.

At the service Reverend Dr. Yvette Noble Bloomfield challenged members of the Scouting Movement to always be mindful of the significance of the Scout Badge and what it symbolizes.

She encouraged them to remain true to the ‘Promise’ so that their lives reflected God’s love and will.

For 35 years of service to the Girl Guide movement, Liz Scholefield received a badge. Joy Frater, Rainbow Commissioner, was also recognised for completing the Branch Association Training Licence.

Scouts Executive Commissioner Winston Hayle appealed to older Scouts to offer support and encouragement to younger boys in the coming months.

Scout groups were also involved in “bob-a-Job,” a uniform day, community service day, group socials and a basketball competition.

Scout Week culminated with a campfire celebration at the Savannah-Newlands playfield.

The event provided an opportunity for young beavers, cubs, scouts and adults to showcase their creative ability in drama, skits, music, songs and storytelling.
