The Leaders and youth members of Air Scouts Canberra invite you and your friends to a Park Party celebrating the 50 year anniversary of the opening of the Scout Hall in Latrobe Park, Deakin. The occasion will also promote the Scout Group, its focus on Air Scouts, and its achievements from initial establishment in Barton in 1925.
The Park Party will be a gathering of Scouting members and leaders, parents and the community with food stalls, historical displays, music, burying of a time capsule, tethered balloon flights, and adventure activities promoting Scouts.
