Corozal Scouts - Christmas Parade and Community Service
The Corozal District Assembly along with its Leaders from the three active Scout groups participated in two events over the past week in an effort to provide entertainment and provide a service to their community.
For visibility and entertainment they decided to be a part of the Corozal Xmas parade and that Venture Scout Leader Ovid Rancharan and his lovely wife Nayeli Rancharan be Mr. & Mrs. Claus.
Hard work went into preparing and decorating the float in which Santa and his wife would be during the parade. A well represented number of Leaders assisted with the decoration and before long the float was ready and the Scouts and Leaders had fun in the parade. Parents of the Scouts also participated in the parade while Scouts made their calls and danced to the Xmas tunes being played during the parade.
For service to their community, the Scouts and Leaders assisted the elderly at a special Mass held at St. Francis Xavier Church for the elderly. This is an annual event in which the Scouts and Leaders participate.
The Corozal District Scout Assembly would like to thank Ms. Fiona Armstrong and Driver Mr. Kenneth Gentle and the DJ for making this event possible.
