Swift Current Group 2 Scouts hosts Lord Baden-Powell celebrations, Feb. 25, 2015

Written by 

The First United Church gym in Swift Current was a hive of activity on Feb. 25 when the Swift Current Group 2 Scouts hosted their annual Lord Baden-Powell celebrations, which also served as a Bring-a-Friend event to introduce non-scouting friends to their activities. The event started with a presentation about the Lord Robert Baden-Powell. The scouts and their friends were able to learn more about making rockets, there were obstacle and speed track races with handmade race cars, a quiz game, crafts and a board game. Scout and Guide organizations across the world have celebrations every year to commemorate the Feb. 22 birthday of Lord Robert Baden-Powell, the founder of the Scout Movement. The Group 2 Scouts will host their annual Kub Kar and Beaver Buggy rally at the Swift Current Mall on March 7.
