22nd February – An important date for me since the day I entered the Scouting movement. Even though today I am not as active and not fully immersed into Scouting activities and management, with my alumni mata, Gan Eng Seng Dragon Scout Group, I am always connected and keeping in touch with them, via projects, major events and through Dragon Chapter.
Looking back at my Scouting adventures, active for 6 years and the rest of the 15 years (and still counting) in a less active role, I am very grateful for what Scouting has taught me, from outdoor skills to leadership skills, that are very important in life (although sometimes not always use) and helped me a lot. The friendship and Dragon Scouting family bonding goes beyond words and description, with lifelong friendship still going on strong today.
Reading the Chief Commissioner’s Founder’s Day 2011 Message by Mr Tan Cheng Kiong (from Dragon Scout Group family too!), it’s a refreshing and great reminder message to all past and present scouts, making friends and maintaining harmonious relationships, the Scout Promise and Law that we abide by. Let’s keep this Scouting friendship burning strong and forever !
Wishing all Scouts especially Dragon Scouting Family ~ Happy Founder’s Day !
Once a Scout, Always a Scout !
