Group Webpage is active: https://www.bayridgescouts.ca/ Please look at your section page.
We have qualified for TechSoupCanada.ca. Attached is a screenshot of various software available to us at a large discount. Rob and I are investigating email hosting, so that each Scouter will get a @bayridgescouts.ca email address -- including one for each section.
Like to discuss going forward and buying jackets for the Group: http://manage.promobullit.com/682/952329a3c763cc04d6c8744d1a69a385/en/product/basket-791863.html. Red and white at $5 each plus tax. Put logo and/or Scouts.ca on jacket = cheap advertising and useful gear! Need to act a bit quickly - would need every member's sizing - fall/spring jacket. (xs-xxl)
Our Lady of Lourdes School - available for outdoor program when we get back to it. Other locations?
