Remembrance Services (and other fall events)


Monday, September 11, 2017 & Tuesday, September 12, 2017:  Annual open house and registration nights

● St Aidan's Church (southeast door)
● 6:30 to 8:00 p.m. (each night)
● St. Aidan’s is at the corner of Campbell Street and Kingsway (River Heights)


For those new to Scouting, this is an opportunity to speak to leaders to find out what Scouting is all about.  Registrations (annual enrolment of youth in all sections: Beaver Scouts, Cub Scouts, Scouts, Venturer Scouts and Rover Scouts) for the 2017-2018 Scouting year will be accepted.  However, on-line registration at myscouts.ca is preferred.  Parents of those in Scout Troop (Age 11-14) can also register your youth for the upcoming Wilderness Challenge Camp, September 29 - October 1 (Camp Amisk).

Please bring your daytimers to the open house, as the tree-lot schedule will be available (each family to complete three sales shifts during the month-long pre-Christmas sale). Sign up early to get your choice of shifts!

All registration should be completed on line if at all possible as this saves time and energy for all.  Parents, in the event you are unable to register on line, or would like a chance to speak to group leaders, please attend the open house.

Registration Open House runs for two evenings (Monday and Tuesday).  However, if you cannot make it out, please contact us at wpg6667@gmail.com for information on the Scouting program and how to register.

Until December 31, 2017, a fee of $215 for each youth applies. For registrations on January 1, 2018 or after, a fee of $165 applies.  The registration will be valid until August 30, 2018.

Remembrance Day Church Parade, with flags, for Beaver Scouts, Cub Scouts, Scouts, Venturer Scouts, Rover Scouts and Leaders. All families welcome.

Our group has been invited to participate in the Remembrance Sunday church service at St. Aidan's Anglican Church. As the church is a sponsor of our Scout Group and a gracious host for many of our meetings and special events, we are hoping that many of our youth, leaders and families will be able to participate and show our appreciation for the church. Prior to the parade, all sections (Beaver Scouts, Cubs, Scouts, Venturer Scouts, and Rover Scouts) will form up (in full uniform) in the basement at 10:00 a.m. and parade our flags into the service at 10:30 a.m.  Youth and families can participate in the service to the extent they wish. Youth may join the Sunday School or Youth Class during the service, if they wish.
