Annual General Meeting

All parents and Scouters are invited to attend. We are required to have an AGM, this also impacts our ability to receive a Community Gaming Grant which pays for a significant amount of our annual scouting expenses. The AGM is normally held during our February Baden Powell Banquet, but due to COVID we have not had that meeting in 2021. Therefore, please support and attend our Virtual AGM on Monday, October 4th at 6:30 PM. Latecomers happily admitted.
