Piece of cake as cubs mark Scout cen­te­naryLeader’s

So proud

Rutherglen Reformer - - News - Edel Ke­nealy

Cub Scouts in Burn­side marked the cen­te­nary year of the cubs sec­tion be­ing launched by the Scouts with a very spe­cial cel­e­bra­tion.

The 113th Cubs, based in the Craw­ford Road Scout Hall in Burn­side, held a thank you evening for par­ents and sup­port­ers of their group as a way of recog­nis­ing the 100 year an­niver­sary.

Cubs, with just a lit­tle help, set out the hall, laid tables, worked in the kitchen and pro­duced a tasty Fri­day night treat of cakes and scones for over 50 guests.

Split into teams, the cubs also served re­fresh­ments and food and then helped to clear away and wash up, demon­strat­ing their sel­f­re­liance in all as­pects of host­ing and ca­ter­ing.

The young­sters also sold raf­fle tick­ets on the evening, rais­ing over £120 to­wards the cost of their trip to the Auchengillan Camp - where Cubs from across Scot­land will cel­e­brate the cen­te­nary year in May - and their out­ing to see the pre­miere of the Jun­gle Book on April 16.

A par­tic­u­larly spe­cial film for the Scouts or­gan­i­sa­tion, the Cub Scout pro­gramme was orig­i­nally formed around the story of The Jun­gle Book writ­ten by Rud­yard Ki­pling.

Cub Scout lead­ers tra­di­tion­ally took the names of jun­gle book char­ac­ters and the pro­gramme was de­signed to help de­velop young peo­ple to be­come ac­tive cit­i­zens in their com­mu­nity.

Cub Scout leader Michelle McKen­zie said: “The cubs were amaz­ing.

“They just took con­trol of ev­ery­thing, work­ing in their teams of six they each took on dif­fer­ent tasks and re­spon­si­bil­i­ties.

“Team work and team lead­er­ship shone through.

“I’m so proud of them all.”
