I am new to this list. In fact this is my first message.
My "only" association with the scouting movement is:
membership as a boy
two sons active members - bioth Young Leaders having been through Beavers, Cubs,
wife is Group Scout Leader -after years in the Guides/ Brownies etc.
I hear that the United Nations has to-day (??) announced that the Scouts and Gui
des will be asked over the next three years to take a special interest in Refug
This is in response to an initiative from the Scouts/ Guides.
This seesm to be to be a VERY innovative and worthwhile event. It should give Sc
outing / Guiding a profile in the International community in a way it has been
impossible to achieve before.
Here is a UNIQUE opportunity for us to do something REALLY worthwhile.
Has anyone else heard about this??
What are the general reactions?
Good/ a distraction???
