Scouts on parade

Scouts will be at Cherry Lane on Saturday, and are also offering a special rate for registrations

The 2nd Penticton Scout group participated in the 2012 Santa Claus Parade with their Beavers, Cubs, Scouts and Venturers.

Our float was designed and set up by the Scouts, Venturers and Leaders. The younger Cubs and Beavers children enjoyed participating in the parade with their leaders and some parents.

We all are very happy and feel honoured to have received the second place as Santa’s Choice in the parade.

We will be in Cherry Lane shopping centre on Saturday from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. to raise funds so we can participate in the Canadian Jamboree in Alberta this summer. We will also be happy to answer any questions and to accept new registrations.

We are offering a special half-year rate for families who want to join Scouts now. Register by Feb. 1, 2013 for an $85 for membership until Aug. 1, and try it out up to three times in January for free.
