New Leaders invested to 2G group Jan 2017

Congratulations to both of our newest leaders, Connor Holmes (Scout Leader – far left in pic) and Tanya Fiedler (Cubs leader in final training – centre of pic). Both are professionals/executives who have already committed much of their time towards the Scouting community last year. They both have children at 2nd Gordon so get to share time with them in a great environment with the support of their fellow leaders. Leader profiles will be added to a new web page tab in near future. Next time you see Connor and Tanya, both will be wearing their one-of-a-kind tartan 2nd Gordon scarves and membership badges. Please support them supporting your children. [Photo apologies absent: Rod and Geoff from our Venturer Scout unit, and Rovers leaders].

Another Successful XMAS Tree Sale Dec 2016

2nd Gordon Scout Group had fantastic help from scouting families to sell Christmas trees at our annual sale we have run for many years. So, thanks to parents, leaders, and committee members for making another very successful Christmas tree sale and fundraiser.

Thank you to our customers and annual supporters within our local community and beyond. We even had one family come as far from the south of the Harbour Bridge, and it was great to see numerous customers continue with the Christmas tradition of coming into the hall to choose their tree as a family. We received an excellent quality crop this year thanks to a great relationship we have with the supplier, and excellent weather ideal for tree growth. The group had many more large trees this year due to the huge demand and sell-out last year within the first hour of sale.

Like every other year, 2nd Gordon provided care advice to prolong the life of the tree, car service, and delivery services.

Christmas in July 2016

Our leaders and parents had a fun, festive evening around an open fire at our annual ‘Christmas in July’ dinner – which was actually in August this year! The mulled wine was a hit as usual, the food was amazing value and our volunteer Christmas elves worked hard to make sure the evening went smoothly. The Christmas Quiz was quite a challenge but there was a clear winner, and some hidden talents were displayed while making Christmas sculptures out of play dough. A big thank you to our Social Committee for organising such a great night!
