6th Richmond Hill Scout Group
Scouter Anthony Hung gets in touch with Father Nicole Ruggiero, pastor of the church, to sponsor and establish a Scout Group in the church so that the children in our parish may have a chance to join the international Scouting Movement. The mission is to contribute to educate young people, through a value system based on the Scout Promise and Law and with regards to the scouting principles:
Duty to Others
Duty to Self
In September 1995, formal application has been filed to Scouts Canada for their approval and issuance of the Charter. Several leaders and adult members are recruited to assist in kick starting our recruitment process in our church and the neighbouring Chinese schools.
The Group officially receives the Charter from Scouts Canada in June as the 6th Richmond Hill Group in an inauguration ceremony. The first investiture of members then takes place.
The Group starts with Beaver Colony (ages 5 - 7), Cub Pack (ages 8 – 10) and Scout Troop (ages 11 – 14) in 1996. As the youth members and the group grow up, new sections of Venturer Company (ages 14 – 17) and the Rover Crew (ages 18 – 26) are added in 2002 and 2005 respectively. By the end of the group’s first decade, we can now accommodate youth members of all age groups (5 – 26).
As one of the parish groups in the Church and a member in the Scouting Movement, we would always be SHARING, SHARING, SHARING the gifts from God; always BE PREPARED to DO THE BEST on any CHALLENGES and would like to provide SERVICES for the Church and for the benefits of the youth members of the group.
We welcome you to join us as youth members (ages 5 – 26) or adult volunteers (age 18 and above).
For details, please contact Group Commissioner (email: firstname.lastname@example.org).
