What beautiful weather marked the solemn occasion of ANZAC remembrance on Monday, 25th April 2016.
All sections of the Broken Bay Scout Group – Joeys, Cubs, Scouts and Venturers participated in the Woy Woy ANZAC Day March to the Cenotaph at Woy Woy Memorial Park and joined the ceremony to contemplate and reflect upon those that have fought, died representing our country, their families, and those that are still serving overseas and within Australia today.
Wreaths were made from hand tracings of group members and placed at the Cenotaph to mark the group’s respect.
An important occasion for all Australians to mark.
Lest we forget…
About 24 Cubs enjoyed a wonderful couple of days cooking up a storm over the 2nd and 3rd April. The best news is parents got to sample these cooked treats too but more about that shortly..
Broken Bay Cubs were joined by 3 Cubs from the 1st Narara Scout Group for this culinary activity.
Activities on the first day included:
- Peeling and chopping vegetables for the Minestrone Soup (so much that two enormous pots had to be deployed);
- Chopping cheese and cabanossi;
- Making loads of yummy biscuits (I managed to try one of those – delicious!);
- Making their own billy can and using it to boil water;
- Pitching tents (perfect weather for it);
- Preparing and cooking – dessert – Nutella Smores (I now know the meaning of smores – you want more of the smores)! Tortilla filled with nutella, marshmallows, and chocolate chips) wrapped in foil and cooked on a camp fire;
- Preparing hamburger patties;
- Napkin folding; and
Parents were welcomed to a beautifully decorated Cub Hall to experience these delectable delights. Sampling:
- Cheese, cabanossi and crackers (starters);
- Minestrone Soup (entrée);
- Hamburger with choice of salad (main);
- Nicely rounded off by Nutella Smores (dessert) – leaving the parents replete and happy.
A big THANK YOU to Akela and Jacala (Broken Bay Scout Group) for making this all happen, Bagheera (1st Narara Scout Group) and all the parent helpers!
