An attempt to bring the Scouting movement back to Iroquois Falls is underway.
It’s being led by Laura Trigg. Right now, kids from the Falls travel to Cochrane for Beavers, Cubs, Scouts and Venturers.
Trigg says it would start with Beavers – boys and girls in kindergarten to Grade 2 – and Cubs – kids in Grades 3 to 5 — eventually expanding into the higher age groups.
“It looks like we have interest as far as families wanting to have the Scouting program for their children,” Trigg reports. It’s the volunteers that’s going to really decide whether we could have the Scouts here.”
Scouts Canada has minimum ratios of adults to kids.
“We have the interest in town, definitely,” says Trigg, “and I think this is such a great group to be adding to Iroquois Falls. I hope that more people take the first step.”
That first step is contacting Trigg through her post on the Iroquois Falls News and Events Facebook page, and registering for screening and training.
