The Compass - - TRINITY SOUTH -

Fe­bru­ary is a spe­cial month for Scouts and Girl Guides world­wide. Each year, both youth or­ga­ni­za­tions cel­e­brate Feb. 22, the birth­day of the move­ment’s founder, Lord Robert Baden-pow­ell and his wife, the World Chief Guide, Lady Olave Baden-pow­ell. This year, Scout- Guide Week opened Feb. 19, and con­tin­ues un­til Feb. 26. In Con­cep­tion Bay North, three units, lo­cated in Car­bon­ear, Har­bour Grace and Vic­to­ria/salmon, joined with mu­nic­i­pal lead­ers last week to sign an of­fi­cial procla­ma­tion, rec­og­niz­ing Scout-guide Week.

Har­bour Grace Mayor Don Coombs is sur­rounded by mem­bers and lead­ers of the Har­bour Grace Sparks, Brown­ies and Girl Guides. Car­bon­ear Mayor Sam Slade helped mem­bers of the Guid­ing move­ment in his town launch Scout-guide Week 2012. Vic­to­ria Mayor Arthur Burke and Salmon Cove Mayor Nathan Gra­ham proudly signed the Scout- Guide Week 2012 procla­ma­tion last week.
