An­zac sur­prise

Warragul & Drouin Gazette - - FRONT PAGE -

A com­bined ef­fort be­tween War­ragul Scout Group and the lo­cal com­mu­nity has seen 50 care pack­ages sent to Aus­tralian troops serv­ing over­seas.

The project, in­sti­gated by scout Sa­van­nah Ives, saw two com­mu­nity ses­sions last week.

The re­sult­ing care pack­ages were sent off on Wed­nes­day af­ter­noon to ar­rive to troops in time for An­zac Day.

War­ragul Scout Group leader Kristy Wad­dell said the project was a chance to bring peo­ple in the com­mu­nity to­gether.

“It’s a chance to think about peo­ple over­seas serv­ing away from fam­ily at a time when peo­ple like to come to­gether,” she said.

Pack­ing care pack­ages for Aus­tralian troops serv­ing over­seas are War­ragul Scout Group mem­bers (from left) Fletcher and Felic­ity Wad­dell, Luke Makken and Sa­van­nah Ives.

Scout Sa­van­nah Ives came up with the idea of cre­at­ing care pack­ages to sup­port Aus­tralian ser­vice­men and women cur­rently serv­ing over­seas. Her lead­er­ship on the project will also help her achieve an Aus­tralian Scout­ing Medal­lion.

Bis­cuits and lol­lies were amongst items packed into care pack­ages for Aus­tralian troops by War­ragul Scout Group mem­bers Fletcher and Felic­ity Wad­dell.
