Sunday, November 10, 2019: Remembrance Sunday Church Colour Parade
10:00am – 12:00pm at St. Aidan's Anglican Church, 274 Campbell Street, Winnipeg, MB
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.

What is Beaver Scouts ...
Fun and friendship are the cornerstones of the Beaver Scout program. Through adventurous outdoor activities, creative play, music and cooperative games, Beaver Scouts enjoy time with current friends and make new ones. With their motto of "Sharing, Sharing, Sharing," Beaver Scouts learn how to get along with a group, and develop the confidence to be themselves.
E-mail us at 67thWpg@gmail.com for a complete schedule of Beaver Scout activities.
Beaver Scouts meet in a group called a "colony." The colony is split into smaller groups called "lodges." There is one leader for every five Beaver Scouts.
Beaver Scouts share many indoor and outdoor adventures with their friends in the Colony. Nature walks, short hikes, tree planting, and family sleepovers give Beaver Scouts a taste of outdoor fun. Through these activities, Beaver Scouts develop an appreciation and a sense of caring for the environment.
Beaver Scouts are a vital part of the community, country, and world in which they live. Visits to museums and other community places thrill young Beaver Scouts and illustrate the many important facets of their community.
Other Beaver Scout activities include crafts, skits and, of course, the Beaver Buggy Rally - an annual car-craft build and race.
You also get to learn a lot about the outdoors, life skills and about Canada and the world ... and have a lot of fun!
A Beaver Scout is a boy or a girl, usually 5 to 7 years of age, participating in the worldwide Scouting movement for young persons.
Program year begins in September, but youth registration and adult leader volunteers accepted any time of the year.
