All families are asked to assist in two annual fundraising events, the proceeds of which are used towards den and equipment maintenance.  If your family is time poor, which unfortunately a lot of us are, you can opt to make a cash donation to the den instead of participating in the fund raising.  You need to talk to Jenny (Group Leader 0409 726 191), about this option.

This year the two fundraising events each requiring the sale of $50 worth of raffle tickets, otherwise a $50 levy/donation. Den (Scout Hall) cleaning levy of $20 is required if you do not assist with roster cleaning of the Den once a year.

All youth members will require a uniform which is available from Queensland Scout Shop www.supply.scoutsqld.com.au  Other uniform items are required.  Please visit the uniform page or discuss specific items with leader of the section.

As a valued member of the Shailer Park Scout Group we would love to have you join the committee.  Please call Jenny (Group Leader 0409 726 191).  You tell us what you can do. Many hands make light work.  Remember we are all volunteers and the more help we have the better the enjoyment for our group, you and your scout.
