The 1st Barrie Foresters will be serving a full Canadian breakfast in our finished basement on Saturday morning, 23 November, 2019 as a thank you for the support that Trinity gave them when they attended the 24th World Scout Jamboree. Forty local scouts attended the Jamboree at the Summit Bechtel Scout Reserve in West Virginia from July 22, to August 2, 2019. There were over 40,000 scouts from numerous countries at the Jamboree.
The 1st Barrie Foresters want to thank us for helping to make this the experience of a lifetime for them. After the breakfast, they will give us a presentation about their experiences during the Jamboree as well as their side trip to Washington, DC. A free-will offering will be taken with the proceeds going towards the replacement of the roof on the Parish Hall. To reserve your spot, please let Bill Sergeant know at <firstname.lastname@example.org>.
Over 40,000 scouts from around the world attended the Opening Ceremony of the 24th World Scout Jamboree at the Summit Bechtel Scout Reserve in West Virginia this summer.
1st Barrie Foresters Going to 24th World Scout Jamboree
On Saturday January 19th, 2019, members of the 1st Barrie Foresters put on a made-to-order breakfast for 30 members of Trinity. During the sumptuous meal, Wendy, one of the Foresters who will be travelling to the upcoming Jamboree at the Summit Bechtel Scout Reserve in West Virginia this summer, gave a presentation about their preparations for the Jamboree and what they will be doing while they are there. They are planning on spending an additional 4 days in Washington, D.C. to see the Smithsonian museums, the Library of Congress, the White House, and other attractions. After enjoying a meal of eggs, toast, melon, pancakes & syrup, hash browns, and bacon, Barry Mitchell thanked the Foresters for their efforts as well as thanking those present for their generous donation towards the cost of Forester’s upcoming trip, which will cost each participant about $4,000. The Foresters have said that they would like to come back in the fall to tell us about their experiences this summer.
