I was up in Salmon Arm again this weekend. We needed to get my father-in-law's home ready for selling. He has been living with us for the last six months as he was getting chemotherapy and things have not worked out well. He will be living in our house to the end and will not be moving home.
I will resume posting about the local elections and other Greater Victoria issues is a day or two.
Remember, Wednesday night be at Spectrum School for the workshop/forum on rapid transit. I will be trying to make it, but Wednesday's is Scout night and I am a leader at 3rd Douglas so I will not be able to get there till late or not at all.
Quick aside, if you know of any youth aged 5 to 17, get them to check out Scouting as a program. They youth learn about the outdoors, the environment, citizenship and leadership. No other program helps youth build the skills to be well rounded adults as Scouting does.
In 2007/08 the 3rd Douglas Sea Scouts went on 8 camps, one of them a week long canoeing trip. The Scout level program is for youth in grades 6 - 8. The Cub program at 3rd Douglas this year are going to have bicycles as their ongoing theme for the year. The Cub program is fro youth in grades 3 - 5.
Scouting is open to boys and girls.
