Scouts on the move

Cayman Islands Scouts Association
is planning a number of events and activities in observance of Scouts Week.

The week’s celebrations under the
theme Challenge to Commitment in 2010, commences on 21 February with a
Founder’s Day Service at the Church
of God, Full Gospel Hall,
and South Church Street,
George Town.

The week culminates with on 27 February
with a campfire celebration at Sav-New playfield, Pedro Castle Road.

There the Scout units will meet
together with parents and friends around a campfire in an atmosphere of fun and
fellowship.

“Scouting as well as other youth
organisations has a major role to play in guiding and directing our youths;
particularly at this time when a number of the young people are seemingly
attracted by activities that could lead them astray,” said Scouts Executive
Commissioner Winston Hale.

“We need to do what every possible
to assist in keeping them focused on our established norms and values” 

At the service, Mr. Hayle is asking
parents and guests to be seated by 3.45pm.

Throughout the week Scouts will
participate in a bob-a-job fundraiser; this involves Scouts undertaking odd
jobs for which they are remunerated.

During a uniform day at the schools,
all units will participate by acquiring permission from the schools to wear
their Scouts uniforms.

 On community service day units will choose to
do work on any given day.

For the basketball competition at
the Cox courtyard on Eastern Avenue,
Scouts teams are to arrive by 5.30pm; t-shirts and refreshment will be provided
by the groups.

The event providesan
opportunity for young beavers, cubs, scouts and adults to showcase their
creative ability in drama, skits, music, songs, storytelling and what ever talent
they have.
