Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 16, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta By CA. Weekes is coining. As Cubs, Scouts and Ventur- ers we must BE PREPARED. To begin with, get into the Christmas spirit. Stretch that smile another inch at least. Practice individual GOOD TURNS like removing icy spols on the neighbor's walk. Run er- rands for elderly folk. Group good turns like writing Christmas Card to someone who lives alone or singing carols at a Senior Citizens' Home are within your scope. Tho Sixth Edmonton Hovers once went carolling at 20 degrees below, got no response so moved over to the nearest fire station. A hearty rendition of There's Fire Down Below got them an invitation to come in and be warm. Just before Christmas there KTR a lot of busy psoulc. for example, Fort Maclcod Scouts and Cubs selling Christmas trees. Scouier Lew IJIair is keeping leaders and boys work- ing on leadership and badge courses. Another busy person with the idea of helping new Cub, Scout and Venturer is Jeanne Sclmell of Tahcr. We hear that Dec. 5 Medicine Hat's opportun- ity for courses, Nov. 28 being a chance for new Scout leaders i BOB JENKINS in Lelhbridge. Good work, Je- anne! Good work, Lew Many groups are very inter- ested in the work of the HCMP tracking dogs and wish they could see one in action. Some years ago the Rochfort Bridge iroop had a chance through their school. The drill is sim- ply this: get your school prin- cipal to contact the nearest RCMP detachment and ask as a favor that if a tracking dog is in or near the community that it be diverted to the school. In the Hochfort instance a talk was given by the trainer fol- lowed by a marvelous exhibi- tion outdoors. For public rela- tions a picture was taken and later of course a letter of ap- preciation was sent to the trainer. Always remember, of course, that for a dog as with a constable, DUTY comes first. The action centre seems to be around Vauxliall by all ac counts. Some 21 Wolf Cubs and 12 Scouts are registered. Cub Scoutcr Wallace Martin, his daughter Sharon. Mrs. .1. Mc- Kay, Ernest Lcc, Gail Som- nicrvillc. Barbara Green and Helty are in charge of the pack. The scouts under C. Loewen, Jeff McKay and Ger- ald Chartrand. Group cominit- tee chairman is Harry Han- uing. Nice going, Vauxliall! The Foremost district meet- ing covered a wonderful amount of business at their an- nual gathering. Chairman G i I Mchlen was returned to office. Harry Calhoun of Foremost was elected vice president. Mrs. Judy Pcdcrscn of Bow Is- land is the new secretary-trea- surer. Sconter Chuck Pederscn was recommended as district commissioner, Mrs. Hoy Wall- man of Foremost being recom- mended as assistant district commissioner. This year's group committee for Foremost includes Harry Calhoun as chairman, Ewald Zielke as vice-chairman, Mrs. E. Bcrntson as secretary, Bob Kuhl as treasurer with Geoff Tagg as publicity chairman. The retiring executive received a heart vote of thanks. The Foremost Pack has just had four investitures. Seven Cubs moved away last summer and three more have gone up into the troop. Cub assistant Gerry Gran berg was honored with a gif as she has retired from th Pack. Harold Street is the Cub assistant. The Foremost Troop scoutcr are Barry Boyd, Ken MacKcn zie and Rev.
