Russell Remembrance Day Service
On November 11th, as we all reflect and say 'THANK YOU" for all of
the sacrifices that our past and current serving Canadian Forces Members
have done in support of freedom for our own country as well as other
countries around the world, we encourage everyone to wear their Scouts
Canada uniform to school or their workplace, and especially to take the
time to attend a Remembrance Day Service. If you are planning on attending the Remembrance Day Service in Russell, our local scouting
group has always been invited to participate in the parade that makes
it's way through town in advance of the service at the Russell Legion.
If you are attending, we ask that you gather ...

2nd Russell Scouting - Group Level Reminders
wanted to reach out to everyone regarding some concerns we have received
from some of our meeting locations which we require everyone's
assistance in addressing.The first concern is
regarding youth members running through our meeting location hallways
before and after the meeting times as well as accessing unlocked lockers
in hallways.This is unacceptable behaviour and we ask for everyone's
assistance in communicating these concerns to our participants since
continued behaviour may result in us losing the facility all together. The
second concern is more linked to the wetter and cooler weather that we
have experienced and will be experiencing and deals with wet and dirty
floors going forward. As such, we ask that participants bring ...

2nd Russell Scouting - Group Level Announcement
the Area and Council Levels have been aware for a while, I just wanted
to inform everyone that after 16 years as a Scout Canada Volunteer (this
being my 17th), with 6 (including this year) as 2nd Russell Group
Commissioner, I have decided that this will be my last scouting year as a
Group Commissioner which will be effective until August 31, 2017.Several
factors have contributed to this decision which first began with the
adoption of our son in June 2015 and the adoption approval requirement
for me to reduce my daily and nightly commitment to scouting. With
assistance from several others in the group, I have been able to
accomplish this and I say thank you very ...

Scouting Gear Donations
Buying gear/clothing for growing kids can get very expensive. Parents need to buy new shoes, clothes, backpacks almost on a yearly basis to outfit their scouts. For some it's not a big problem but others it's not that easy, this can result in youth leaving scouting just because they feel they can't gear up properly for camping or even buy a new uniform when they outgrow their old one. Our thinking is there is probably a lot of used gear and clothing in our group that can be put to better use instead of sitting in a closet collecting dust. We'd like to try and help enable our members and families with a way to ...
