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.
