Program Guide & Scout Fair Information

Enclosed is the Scout Week 2008 program guide & Scout Fair Information. This program is to serve as a guide as you develop your program for the week but you are also encouraged to organize and participate in as many of the activities planned for the week.

Scout Week is held every year commemorating the birthday of Lord Baden-Powell, the Founder of the Scout Movement. This year we are celebrating the week from February 17 - 24.

The theme for this year’s Scout Week is Scouting - Values for life. Let us all make Scout Week a successful one.

Please also take note of the National Scout Fair scheduled for Saturday February 23 & 24. This event will be held in the village of San Narciso in the Corozal District and Scouts from all other districts are invited to attend. An information sheet is attached to assist you in planning your participation. You are, of course, encouraged to prepare properly by planning your participation in advance to ensure a memorable experience to all the participating Scouts.

Looking forward to a fun and exciting Scout Week 2008 and weekend in San Narciso with all of you and best wishes for a happy and enjoyable Scout Week 2008.
