In the Community
You might be familiar with the common activities and events like Apple Day or Scout Trees, but being involved in the community means more than just making your own events. When something important happens it's a safe bet that scouts will be there! Be it a visit from significant individuals, or ceremonies for various celebrations, we are always present.
In some cases, Scouts might get a chance to meet special people as recognition for continuous involvement and excellence, as seen above.
Meanwhile, to the right you can see how visiting dignitaries might have a chance to meet local scout groups, as was the case with the 1959 Royal visit to Canada.
Below is an event where members of the Kingston Scouting community had the opportunity to meet Prime Minister William Lyon Mackenzie King.
Over the year, Scouts have been to many events, and been involved in the community in meaningful ways. Their participation will continue to add value to local and global communities.
In their meetings and travels, Scouts have the chance to represent their local communities, and Canada. This does not just have to mean meeting people who visit, but even becoming representatives on an international scale.
At the Jamboree of Peace 1947, Canadian scouts represented Canadian soldiers when they were given a plaque from Norwegian scouts in thanks for Canadian involvement in the liberation of Norway during World War II.
