We have cel­e­brated three Ven­tur­ers gain­ing their Queens Scout Award; con­grat­u­la­tions Ge­orgie, Caitlin and Cassie. We have a fourth who has just com­pleted her last chal­lenge — an ex­pe­di­tion hike.

Our Rovers have cel­e­brated 100 years of Rover­ing with spe­cial events. They have sup­ported Tastes of the Goul­burn and have been part of the SPW pro­duc­tion of Grease.

Cub Scouts have had a busy 12 months.

We had a lot of fun themed nights, such as Harry Pot­ter, Big Bang, mak­ing masks, Scout Wars, pi­rates, a back­ward night and sense train­ing.

These nights were bal­anced with Boomerang­fo­cused ses­sions cov­er­ing skills such as ropes, first aid and fit­ness.

For day ex­cur­sions the Cubs did Clean Up Aus­tralia, An­zac Day march, hikes, Na­tional Tree Day, Karin­gal con­cert, and disco sleep-overs in the hall.

There were some big camps as well, with the Group go­ing to Eumer­alla for a camp by the beach, and a Cub ver­sus Wild themed camp.

This last camp chal­lenged the Cubs to go on high-ropes, fly­ing-fox, shel­ter build­ing and eat­ing bush tucker.

Our Scout Group was please to have Ja­clyn Symes open the ren­o­vated kitchen, funded un­der the McEwen Stronger Com­mu­ni­ties Grant 2018 and along with Mitchell Shire Mayor Rhonda San­der­son, to speak at the Ded­i­ca­tion of the World War I Ar­mistice Cen­te­nary Peace Park, funded by the De­part­ment of Vet­er­ans Af­fairs un­der the Com­mem­o­ra­tive Grants pro­gram for the Cen­te­nary of Ar­mistice.

Taun­gu­rung El­der Shane Monk wel­comed all who at­tended and taught us about the Wel­come to Coun­try and the Smok­ing Cer­e­mony. The Smok­ing Cer­e­mony was a cleans­ing and the op­por­tu­nity to cre­ate a fresh start.

De­cem­ber brings sum- mer and we are look­ing for­ward to the Lions’ Car­ols in the Park, our end-of-year Christ­mas break-up with a KubKar night; Vic Gath­er­ing, a fan­tas­tic camp for Ven­tur­ers; and jam­boree in Jan­uary — what a way to round off this year.

A huge thanks to all the par­ents, friends and fam­ily that help to make this Scout group a suc­cess.

Your ef­forts as fundrais­ers, lead­ers, adult helpers, com­mit­tee and com­mu­nity sup­port­ers are so im­por­tant, and we couldn’t do any of this with­out you.

Thanks to Lions, Ro­tary, RSL Sey­mour, Mitchell Shire Con­cert Band, SPW, The Aus­tralian Lighthorse Me­mo­rial Park Com­mit­tee and Mitchell Shire Sports and Aquatic Cen­tre for invit­ing us to share com­mu­nity events with you.

Spe­cial thanks to Nick Ridd and his team for their work on the kitchen ren­o­va­tion and WW1 Ar­mistice Cen­te­nary Peace Park, and to our hard-work­ing com­mit­tee.

Also many thanks to Mitchell Shire, Rob Mitchell, Steph Ryan, Ja­clyn Symes, Bak­ers De­light, Burgess Signs, Sey­mour Car­a­vans and Trail­ers, Sey­mour FM 103.9, The Tele­graph, Sey­mour Den­tal Clinic, IGA, Toy­world, Mrs Pos­sum Fund and The Brew­ers Ta­ble for their con­tin­u­ing sup­port through­out the year.

Wish­ing you all a safe and happy Christ­mas sea­son and pros­per­ous new year.
