A team of youth (with support?) made a variety of sandwiches for the post service morning tea at the Brooklyn Community Centre. We embrace a number of opportunities during the year to support our local community.
The service was held at Brooklyn School. Several Cubs laid the wreath before it was taken up to the Brooklyn War Memorial.
Tonight we celebrated some significant contributions (to the Brooklyn Scout Group) by our Kaiārahi. Bob (Rata) received his 30 years of outstanding service award. David received his Bronze Tiki Award for his ‘over and above’ contribution to Scouting (from being a Kaiārahi for 9 years, to Group Leader, to Jamboree Troop Leader, to supporter of the wider Zone). Anneleah received a Koru Award (five years service) for her time as Kea Kaiārahi and Chair of the Committee and general organiser. Denise received a 10 year service award for her Kaiārahi roles and committee support. Joss received a Koru Award (along with Catherine, Jaime, Gary & John).
Bob and David have both retired: Please recite a quick B-R-A-V-O to thank them for their contributions!
The night finished with a Kai and a lolly scramble. And yes, we are looking for new adult. volunteers!
For our first trip of the year our keas went to the annual Wellington Pride fair for some exploring, some leaning, and lots of free candy! We met people from all walks of life and the kids had a great time touring the venue in their posse before retiring for some hard earned games of mega-jenga
Recently we visited Karori West and played noughts and crosses (very loudly). This was a first introduction, working towards being one Troop at Jamboree. One of our scouts wanted a sewing badge; so he made one! And as part of a planning session Scouts showed they could sign the Scout Promise
Paperplanes were the order of the night after carefully decorating the paper first
