Photos from Cuboree 2014

Here are some photos from the 2014 Cuboree (6th – 10th January 2014, Cataract Scout Camp, Appin, NSW).
Cataract is huge! The activities organised for the kids were terriffic… I think the Cubs had a great experience.
I was one of the cooks for Pack 709, so I didn’t get to all the activities, but I took 520 photos before the battery gave out. Here’s 64 of the better ones, so you can get an idea of what it was like.

Grill’d Penrith Fundraiser!

Here’s an easy fundraising activity!
We’ve been selected to participate in Local Matters at Grill’d Penrith this September.
If you’re planning on eating out during September, think about going along to Grill’d Penrith. You’ll get a token, which you can put into one of three jars.
One of the jars will be for 1st Emu Plains, and if we get the most tokens, we’ll get the largest donation!

Local Matters is the Grill’d community donation program that sees each Grill’d restaurant donate $500 back into the community every month. The donation is split between 3 local community groups $300 / $100 / $100.

It’s a simple (and delicious) way to show your support!

You’ll find us on a jar at Grill’d Penrith, Ground Floor, Westfield Penrith 585 High St, Penrith

Clean Up Australia Day 2015

Sunday the 1st March is Clean up Australia day and we need as many Scouts, Cubs and Joeys as possible to come up to the hall and give us a hand.
We need all of you girls and guys to join in the fun and make Australia clean.

Today we will be cleaning up our own space, the scout hall and the grounds and we need the parents of the cubs, joeys and the scouts to give some of their time on this day to ensure that the area our kids play in is clean and safe. It would be appreciated if the parents could spend some time and their muscles cleaning up our area.

If you could spare sometime please just pop up and lend a hand. If you have access to equipment such as lawn mowers, wheelbarrows, spades etc please bring them with you. There will be a sausage sizzle at a small price and free tea and coffee provided.

Car Wash:
All the cubs and Joeys and Scouts are asked to bring a bucket and a sponge and car wash as we will be offering cars to be washed by our members.
$10 for a small car
$15 for a large car.
All monies will go into the fundraising pot for Jamboree in 2016
