Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 20, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta g _ TM UTHMIDOI HWALO Sahinfay, JO, Sy CA. vteekes nstitute leals with grievance JOYS of winter camping be- caire evident to Scouts and Venturers of Claresholm just b e f o r e the big Chinook. Led by Scouter Gordon Brown, file group, numbering about 12, spent a week end in the for- est reserve west of the Gordon Burton ranch. Assistants were Ken Dahl, Barry Gray and Akela Norman Cutfortb. Survival was the theme and each boy came away with a wider knowledge through his experiences. It has been said that sum- mer camp is a "fun camp" and a winter camp is a "work camp." The group did enjoy the use of BUI Laing's four- wheel drive truck. Granum Cubs and Scouts held tbeir Mother and Son Ban- quet in the Community Hall re- cently. The Toast to the Queen was proposed by Chris Dona- hue while Ian Dudley said Grace. Master of ceremonies was Roy Fjordbotten. Present were Cub Scouters Mrs. J. Wevers Mrs. T. Blair, Scouter Lew Blair and Mrs. Blair, John Strang and Mrs. Strang, and Scouter Doug Barnes. Boys present were given ad- vice on the values of Scouting and Cubbing. Warm apprecia- tion was voiced for cooks H. Jorgenson, A. Travis, M. Dona- hue and A. Munro. To have a Wolf Cub Pack you must have boys, ad.isers and leaders. The town of Hanna now has two packs complete with leaders. Cub Scouters Garth Hanlon and Earl Button will lead the first pack. The second will be led by Ian Stephens, Albert Button and Vern Nunweiler. Dave Rcdgwell heads the group committee. Each number has been assigned special duties. All this came abort through the help of W. Johnson and E. Hart in outlining requirements. The Hanna Elks, the Lions Club and the Anglican Church Group will willingly assist. A registration fee of ?1 per boy will be charged to cover the actual registration and the greater part of uniform. Good going, Hanna! Incidentally, back In the ear- liest '30s the Akela was no less than Cam 'Kirby, now Justice J. C. Kirby tf. the Alberta Supreme Court. Cub Scouter Jim Haas of Blairmore reports that the pack at Blairmore has moved from the United Church base- ment to a newly rebuilt and redecorated basement of the Elks Hall. This will give much- needed extra space. We understand the citizens of Foremost recently paid tribute to Akela Irene Wallman. We hope to have more details of this event later.
