Ontario Fellowship Executive have announced the date of the 2015 Annual General Meeting
as October 31/15 At Blue Springs Scout Reserve!.
During the 2015 Ontario Gilwell Reunion Russ Kelk Ontario Gildmaster setup a display
to explain the Guilds to other Scouters attending Reunion.
When the Ontario Fellowship of Baden-Powell Guilds heard that there would be a Market
Fair held on Saturday afternoon of the Ontario Gilwell Reunion, we applied to have
a booth to recruit possible new members for the Ontario Guilds. Prior to Reunion,
the executive talked about what would be needed at the display. We placed a blue
cloth over the picnic table and displayed the National Guild pamphlets, copies of
Mamook Papah, individual membership applications and the contact names that we had
for all the Baden-Powell Guilds in Ontario. Our National Fellowship flag was flying
behind the table. The display was manned by Gary Mitchell, Dave McWha and Russ Kelk
who are members of our Ontario executive.
During the afternoon we chatted with many prospective and current members of Baden-Powell
Guilds. We gave information to all those enquiring about what our Guilds are doing
currently, as well as how a Guild can help their local Guide and Scout groups in
their home areas and councils. It was a great day sharing fellowship with a lot of
Scouters and former Guiders who received information on who we are and what we do!
While at Gilwell Reunion, information about the Ontario Fellowship Annual General
Meeting was also placed in the mail box of each Contingent, who were located in both
Ebor Park and Whiskin Fields This information had previously sent out by the secretary
of the Ontario Fellowship to all Ontario Guilds by e-mail.
