AGM 2013

Good morning everyone!

I would like to remind you that our Annual General Meeting will be held on next Monday night, 29th April 6.45pm at the Den.

Scouts is a voluntary organisation, and it is at this time of the year it is appropriate to get together to recognise and show our support for the many volunteers who give of their time and efforts each week so that your children (and mine) can enjoy their scouting experience. It is expected that a representative from each family will attend.

We need to appoint a new group committee and each section prepares a report of highlights and progress over the past twelve months. This year we have already ‘filled’ the core positions of Chairman, Secretary and Treasurer – the executive of the committee. Vacancies still exist for fundraising co-ordinator, hall manager and public relations and it would be ideal to fill these positions and have an extra few parents willing to come along to our monthly meetings and assist with the management of the group, many hands make light work! Please consider being a part of this vital part of our group. The parent committee manages the finances, pays the bills, supports and funds the leaders in training, identifies and manages purchase of equipment items,scout den maintenance, and management of our website Grants are applied for and money from your fees and fundraising is put towards these initiatives.

The Kawana Group is only as successful as its parent involvement allows, our current committee have done a fantastic job of this, and we are very grateful for their support over the past 4 years.

Looking forward to seeing you all there!

Kind regards

Julie Lancaster (Raksha)
