More than 300 scouts from across the North West region will celebrate World Scout Scarf Day today.
Annually, on August 1, scouts from around the world celebrate being involved with the largest youth movement which was formed in 1907 and currently has 38 million members in 166 countries.
Scout Groups from Moree to Glen Innes to Tamworth will hold a group family event where families will come together and run fun activities for their youth members.
World Scout Scarf Day is also a chance for members of scouting to wear their scarves in public to raise awareness of the local scouts community.
On July 22, 2017, Scouts Australia endorsed a change of the Scout Promise and Law which all members of Scouting - adult leaders and supporters and youth members aged six to 26 - commit to as a code to live by.
At 6.30pm tonight all members of Scouting will be asked to renew their Scout Promise as a symbol of the worldwide movement of Scouting. This will be the first chance for the Kids to “try on” the new Scout Law as a group.
The North West region currently consists of 13 scouts groups located in Tamworth, Armidale, Glen Innes, Inverell, Moree, Narrabri and the NSW Lones Scout Group.
If you or your children wish to be involved in Scouting please contact the NW region office on 6765 7700.
