"Thanks from the heart for all messages of farewell from official ‘Akela’ Cub Scout leader duties with the Mirrabooka Cub Scout Pack at Air Scouts Canberra.
It’s been a pleasure and great enjoyment to have worked with and for the benefit of our younger generation experiencing the worldwide Scouting movement – which after all is a Youth Movement – developing our future Community Leaders - spiritual + physical + intellectual. We’ve shared a lot of history together and I trust Cubs have enjoyed many highlights.
I know Eric and Max have enjoyed the company of their fellow Cubs and Scouts, and as a family we have gotten more out of the Scouting experience than we have put in over 4 years – as odd as that may sound (but true!)
I look forward to introducing our temporary Term 3 Akela, Fiona McKinnon, ACT Cub Scout Commissioner to you next Term, at first meeting back on Monday July 21 – 6pm.
The search for new Leaders in our Cub Section continues in absolute urgency, we must find 2-3 volunteers - and there will need to be a weekly Parent-help roster to run the activities in each meeting. I know everyone will rally to the cause for our Cubs sake."
