Three Acts of Goodness - Tis the Season for Sharing – 6th Meadowvale Scouts Year End Virtual Gathering

On December 13, 2020, the 6th Meadowvale Scout Group held their year end gathering, entitled “Three Acts of Goodness - Tis the season for Sharing”. There was a total of 45 participants from various sections, along with special guests, The Director of Fo Guang Shan Temple of Toronto, Venerable Miao Mu, and Scout Advisor Venerable Ru An.

 

Unlike past year-end gatherings, this year’s meeting was held on-line due to the pandemic. The gathering began with a prayer led by Venerable Miao Mu. During the gathering, members shared their scout spirit by performing music, making crafts, singing, and other activities. The Beavers, Cubs, Scouts, Ventures, and scout leaders all worked together to make the event into a special moment for everybody to enjoy. The virtual year end gathering enabled Scouts to demonstrate the confidence, responsibility, and broader sense of friendship they acquired through scouting. They showed their social skills and self-sufficiency they had learned.

 

Although currently everyone is unable to meet in person, joint efforts like these have led to a new form of connection. All participants were grateful for the opportunity to participate in the event and are looking forward to gatherings in the New Year.
