Joel Grunbaum and Leah Hain of 28th Glen Eira Venturer Unit were formally presented their Queen Scout awards at a ceremony at Government House over the weekend just past.

I looked for Scouts this Thursday but all I saw were a motley group of pretty scary beasts. Our leaders did their best to spook them into action. Designing a face for their jack-o-lanterns went well with some pretty spooky results. The mummy race was hilarious (who knew toilets rolls has so many other uses). […]

This week the older Scouts passed down wisdom to the younger of our Troop. Scouts were encouraged to discuss their badgework and what they planned to achieve. Then the older scouts helped the younger ones with lashing knots. The cooperation and patience shown by all Scouts was highly commendable. It’s what Scouting is all about.
