The K2 Venturer Unit welcomed seven new members at an investiture ceremony held at a Bush Duff on the banks of the Murrumbidgee River last night. Five linking scouts, and two new members have joined. Welcome to Kama and to K2.
An intrepid band of Jamboree fundraisers braved the cold early on Fathers Day morning to volunteer at the Canberra Times Fun Run. At the start of the 10km and 14km races, 13 of us handed out promotional headbands to the crowd. Most people were very glad to accept an additional piece of clothing to cover their cold ears! The photo shows Jessica, Ava and Roberta wearing headbands up and down their arms and legs.
The Venturers have been building a pizza oven. Last weekend they completed the last major structural element (the lid or roof). Last night, they lit a “cool” fire to test the draw of the flue and to help dry things out. A few more bits and pieces (such as shelving) will see the pizza oven ready for a test run. Brolga has kindly hauled in some logs for seating. All-in-all, we’ve got the makings of a lovely area for eating, talking and contemplation of life’s important questions.
BRAVO-O-O to everyone involved!
