It's June. School is almost out and all our Sections have had their final meetings for the year. There were camping trips and year-end parties. And at our End of Year Banquet, many of our youth progressed from Beavers to Cubs, or from Cubs to Scouts.
But as we all enjoy the sunshine and warm weather, our Group grows quiet. Vacations, camping and cottages will keep many of our members occupied throughout the next few months.
There are still things to do, though. The Group Committee will be interviewing prospective new leaders, for one thing (and I can't miss the opportunity to direct you to our contact page where you can find out how to volunteer too!).
But there's something else we're working on - 8th Newmarket is going digital!
In preparation for the upcoming 2012/2013 Scouting year, we will be running this blog, and we've got a Facebook page as well.
We want to connect with our youth, their families and our community. So please subscribe to the blog and "Like" us on Facebook. Share our posts in both places with your friends (remember the Beaver Scout motto: "Sharing, sharing, sharing!").
And talk to us...because we'd love to hear from you!
