Notice of 1st Coburg Scout Group - ARAP (aka AGM) Monday 19 August 2019 from 7pm

Hello all

The Group Leadership and Parent Committee would like to invite you to the upcoming ARAP (Annual Reports and Presentation) for our Group. ARAP will be held at the 1st Coburg Scout Hall (20b Carr Street Coburg North).

This year each section will have youth supporting the presentation of their reports.  All section youth are encouraged to attend in uniform. 

These meetings are a great chance to meet and talk to the leaders, our District Commissioner (Chris Ballard), other parents and the Parent's Committee.

The meeting will go for approximately one hour with light refreshments served upon completion.

Please note: Regular Section meetings on the Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday for this week will NOT occur.

We would love to see as many of you join us in celebrating what has been a huge year at 1st Coburg Scouts.

Please RSVP by reply email with number of adults/children so we can ensure there are plenty of seats and refreshments.

We look forward  to seeing you there.

Yours in Scouting

Annual Registration & Fees 2019-2020

The Parent’s Committee resolved the following fees to cover Scout Victoria Registration and Group Fees to cover the ongoing costs for the running of the Group, including hall and equipment upkeep.
