We all stood together shoulder to shoulder immersed in the feeling of deep respect we have for those who gave everything they had for us. What an honor to be part of the dawn parade witnessed by thousands present. Our scout group were outstanding and we should all be very proud.
The Brooklyn Service made us all feel part of a community that recognized the value in understanding the sacrifices made in the past that shaped what we have now. We all remembered and we will not forget, and we are extremely proud of our youth.

In mid April, Scout George Baker completed the Waikaremoana track with a group of 19 from Brooklyn Scouts, and within a few days had hopped on a plane to London with his family. Not letting up on being active in Scouts, George headed immediately for Holborn Scout Group in central London. Here’s George wearing his Brooklyn scarf at the flag raising in the children’s play area next to the Holborn Scout Hall – they then went on a treasure hunt around London’s Fleet St area. We hope to see lots more news from “Our Scout in London”.
These are the photos from the last LNI camp with Scouts and Venturers. The 6th – 8th March 2015.
