ANZAC Dawn Service 2017

Representatives of 6th Melbourne turned out to march from the local RSL to the cenotaph on Racecourse Road behind a lone piper.

The weather was a little wet but spirits were still high as a hand made wreath consisting of several poppies made by our scouts was laid on behalf of 6th Melbourne by Emma Rawson and Arcadia Merlot.

A hearty BBQ breakfast of bacon and egg rolls prepared by Richard, Dale, Elizabeth and Michael was enjoyed by all our marchers back at our hall.

The Mob gets invested

On Wednesday 14th March all 14 members of the Mob were invested. Everyone was very excited as the paparazzi snapped away while badges and scarves were presented after the Joey Scouts made their promise in small groups. All the Joey Scouts were incredibly well behaved during the 20 minute ceremony.

All the Joey Scouts looked very smart in their new uniforms as they embarked on their scouting career as a youth member which, we hope, may be 20 years for some.
