Volunteers are needed for La Salle Scouts

  • Print

You don’t need to know how to tie a sailor’s knot to volunteer as a Scout leader.

Glenn Dickson, former Scout leader in La Salle, said the organization offers free training for its leaders.

"You don’t have to come into the program knowing everything," he said.

Dickson and another former leader, Sonia Chabot, are seeking adult volunteers so that local boys can participate in Beavers, Cubs and Scouts.

Dickson said a Scout troop was formed in La Salle in 1984, with up to 45 members participating in 2001-02. Boys from as far away as Altona were members. They took part in local winter skills competitions, camping and canoeing in the area and in other parts of Canada using equipment owned by the La Salle troop.

"We’ve gone to jamborees," he said. "We’ve done a lot of activities away from La Salle."

However, a lack of leaders brought the troop to an end two years ago.

"We have had a problem trying to attract new leaders," Dickson said.

For more information on volunteering as a leader, contact Dickson at 204-736-4103 or Chabot at 204-736-4411.
