On the evening of October 10, the combined Troop gathered at Camp Manitou in the Cub Council Rock fire pit for our annual investiture night. Continuing the new tradition from the previous year, we held the ceremony in the outdoors. Our Pioneer Scouts had been busy the previous few weeks learning about the Scout Law and Promise and the Scout Salute, and were now ready to join the other Scouts as full members of our Troop. We also welcomed our new Patrol Leaders, Assistant Patrol Leaders and Troop Leader into their roles.
It was a special evening for us as it was also the official welcome to the Scouts of 2nd Strathcona who had officially partnered up with the East Burlington Scout Troop the previous week.
Attending the event were the Area Commissioner, Group Committee Chairs and Group Scouters from the component groups, as well as parents and Scouts from the entire Troop. Following the ceremony, we had an evening of storytelling, campfire songs, and fellowship. The leaders even served hot chocolate and snacks!
