2015 Wold Jamboree
Attention North Waterloo Area Senior Scouts and Ventures
If you have been thinking about going to the 2015 World Jamboree in Japan now is your time to act. The North Waterloo Area World Jamboree Patrol has seven Scouts and Ventures from 1st Lexington, 10th Waterloo and 1st Elmira and we are looking for 2 more to Scouts or Ventures from the Area to complete the Patrol before we look outside the Area.
While some of the Scouts and Ventures in the Patrol have been actively fundraising for more than a year its not too late to come out and join the Patrol. Over the next year and half the Patrol will continue to be active in fundraising to minimize the individual costs and we will be running a number of linking events to give the Scouts and Ventures from the Patrol the opportunity to come together as a patrol.
If you are interested or would just like more information please contact Scouter Matthew (details below). Don’t miss out on this once in a lifetime opportunity.

Several Cub Scouts ready their Kub Kars just before their big race at the North Waterloo Kub Kar Rally at Conestoga Mall in Waterloo on Monday, January 20th, 2014. The members of the North Waterloo Rover Guild put on this well attended event every year. The Rover Guild members are also key players in volunteering more of their own time at the Ruedesheimer Garten; an event at Kitchener Waterloo’s Oktoberfest which aims to support youth in the community. These local youth and Rover Guild volunteers pose along with Council Commissioner George Christian and Council Executive Director Elizabeth Barrow as North Waterloo Area Commissioner Shawn Frederick accepts a $35,000 donation from Ruedesheimer Garten Inc.
Presenting the cheque is Event Chair Kevin Donovan, as well as directors Beverly Wood and Cornelia Gerrard. Funds will cover the cost of a roof replacement for Wheeler Lodge at Everton Scout Camp near Rockwood, ON.
Scouts Canada extends its thanks and appreciation to Ruedesheimer Garten Inc. for their ongoing and generous support of Scouting in the Kitchener-Waterloo community, and also wishes to recognize the directors who were not on hand for the cheque presentation; which includes John Young, Jim Gerrard and Cory Shantz who are all strong supporters of Scouting and other youth programs in the community.
