Baden Powell Dance and Silent Auction in Support of Scout House

I am involved with the 3rd Douglas Scout Group here in Victoria and believe this is the single best program out there for kids.

Scouting is a great program from youth. It gets youth out into the outdoors, it teaches them leadership, responsibility, and good citizenship. They learn the skills that will allow them to make a success of their lives.

Scouting needs more support from the public and this fundraiser is a good chance for you to show your support and have a good time.

SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 28, 7:30-Midnight
ESQUIMALT LEGION, Admirals & Esquimalt Rd
TICKETS: $10 each -includes appies, good music, great company (Free canoes for a day at Camp Barnard to the group that sells the most tickets!!)

The list of great auction items is growing daily and will soon be posted on the website. Stay tuned for weekly updates. The most exciting and unique item on the list to date is a 19", 21 speed mountain bike in World Scout colours with great decaling donated by Mike Scott, past National Commissioner for Scouts Canada. Mike used it in his role as Canadian Contingent leader at the 2007 World Jamboree. It is truly one of a kind and you can see it at Scout House now. We will be spreading the word beyond Victoria about this great Scouting collectible. Take a look next time you are at Scout House!

What if every group was represented at this event??? Wouldn't that be fun!

Organized by 30th Canadian BP Guild; all proceeds to Scout House restoration.
