We have come to the end of what has definitely been the most challenging year many of us have ever experienced. While many of our usual Scouting activities have had to be put to one side this year, the core concepts of Scouting (doing our best, helping each other and facing challenges head-on) have never been so important. Watching our Beavers, Cubs, Scouts and Ventures face the challenges of 2020 has been inspirational.
I’d ask you to take a moment to thank your child’s leaders. Despite everything, they continue to give up their time and energy so that the Beavers, Cubs, Scouts and Ventures get to experience the adventure of Scouting. Many Scout Groups simply shut their doors in March and haven’t reopened. This was never an option for the Scouters of the 23rd Limerick. They continue to look at ways to adapt what we do and keep the adventures going.
I’d also like to thank all of you for your support, patience and understanding this year, in particular your help with our fundraising campaigns. These efforts help keep our group active and are greatly appreciated.
I would like to wish you and your families a happy and safe Christmas. Let us all look forward to better times in 2021.
Yours in Scouting
