The Scout Association of St. Vincent and the Grenadines will hold its annual general meeting on Saturday at the Association’s headquarters at Arnos Vale at 3 p.m.
Among items on the agenda are the warranting of Scout commissioners, including a new chief commissioner, the election of a new executive and the delivery of reports.
The feature address will be delivered by lawyer Jadric Cummings, a former Cub Scout.
Saturday’s meeting will be held under the theme: “Rebuilding the Movement in 2014 and Beyond” — the same theme for activities to mark the 100th anniversary of scouting in St Vincent and the Grenadines, which is being celebrated this year.
Scouting was officially started here in SVG in Georgetown on April 17, 1914 by a Methodist Minister, Julian A Archer.
Other activities planned to mark the 100th anniversary of scouting in St Vincent and the Grenadines include a lecture, a march and thanksgiving service, an anniversary dinner and an awards presentation ceremony — both under the patronage of the Chief Scout, Sir Frederick Ballantyne — and a fundraising moonlight cruise.
