If the Scout Group is involved in a public event, such as our operation of the Sausage Sizzle at Bunnings Mile End, this must be seen as both a publicity and a fund raising opportunity.
We need to make a professional impression with our volunteers dressed in clearly identified by wearing Scout Group polo shirts. The set up should include display of our banners and suitable hand-outs for prospective members.
To make this work, you will need to volunteer to be on the staffing roster for such events.
Unfortunately, the opportunities to be part of some events like the “Tour Down-Under” has been often locked up by some commercial over-spanning contract. So the availability of participation has become very limited and highly competitive. If you know of an opportunity please contact the Group Support Committee.
Facebook and Instagram are fantastic ways to promote Scouting. Please enjoy their use by posting photos and stories about the great activities you are doing in Scouts.
