The Charter was presented by Mr. Pearce Butler, Area Training Commissioner. The Committee is:-Bro. J. St. Leger S.D.B. (Unit Leader), Paddy Fay (Chairman), Pat Kiely (Secretary), Brian O'Malley (Treasurer), Pat Leamy, Pat Brady and Gene Gargan. A section of Cub Scouts was formed 011 1st November with sixteen boys aged between 8 years and 11 years. We regret that there are no vacancies in this section at the moment. Cub-Master - Billy Flood, Assistant Cub Mistress is Ann Gargan, and leaders are Alfredo Aguis and Fergus Tuohy. Two other Boy Scout leaders are Jose Lefrano, S.D.B., and Kieran O'Reilly S.M.A. We make an urgent appeal for young men aged between about 17 and 20 years to train as Scout Leaders - contact any committee member. Discos will be run locally during the winter months to raise badly needed funds for equipment so that we can expand the Troop and its activities over the next year. Local boys have shown a tremendous interest and we feel that many more will want to become members. You are all aware of what Boy Scouts do and the great void the movement fills for Irish children generally. The Troop have organized a Cabaret which will be held at the "Hitching Post" on 9th December next with guest star Noel V. Ginnety. Tickets for this can be had from any of the committee members - all are welcome.
