Stadium fundraiser kicks it out the park again

All Blacks WinWhat a great job from the parents and senior Youth last weekend at the All Blacks vs Wallabies game doing one of our precious stadium fundraiser.  Looks like there’s another $800 coming our way after a very hectic evening.

I understand we ran out of several lines of drinks – but there were still a few of those plastic hotdogs left…. 🙁

Best buddies with the GG!

One of our Scout Patrol Leaders, Liam, was invited to attend the Royal Visit recently at Government House in Wellington.  His attendance provided an opportunity for this photo to be taken with Lieutenant General Sir Jerry Mateparae (the GG is Chief Scout in NZ).

It was apparently the only photo taken with a member of the visiting public…  wearing a scout uniform does have its privileges!

The Queen thanks Brooklyn Scouts

… well, through and instruction to her Lady-in-Waiting!

The Group wrote to the Her Majesty earlier in the year, to pass on its congratulations during her Diamond Jubilee celebrations.  Part of the Scout Promise involves doing our duty to the Queen – and this was a nice way to do so.

Hopefully, we’ll get the response displayed in the Hall in Term 4.
