Celebrating the start of our Scout troop

Chris Case, who has been involved in Scouting for the past 10 years, says that he would never have believed that he would be sleeping in a tent when the temperature was -20, or eating oatmeal for three meals a day on occasion at camp – and enjoying it!

He’s not the only one. There were close to 100 of them at St. Cuthbert’s Church early last month for a reunion party to celebrate the fact that a bit over 90 years ago, on March 2, 1923, Charles Chambers, Donald Young and William Clewes met at the same church to sign an application for troop charter to start a new Scout troop – No. 69, in Toronto.

In 2013 there are more than 80 young people, boys and now girls too, who are Beavers, Cubs and Scouts connected to the 69th along with their leaders
