Adult Scout Leaders Course Friday April 28th - Monday 1st May 2017

Alonissos was privileged to host a national adult scout leaders course on the island across the Labour Day weekend.  A large number of adult scout leaders came to the course which was led by a very senior member of the scouting hierarchy.  Captain Nikos, our senior scout leader, organized the food and accommodation for the participants and the whole weekend was blessed with really good weather.

On Monday evening a presentation ceremony took place in the grounds of the church of Agios Panteleimonas in Votsi where various people were given awards and, the work that the scouts had done in wood within the church of Agios Panteleimonas in Votsi, was open for everyone to see.  Adult scout leaders had come from across the Greek mainland and as far away as the island of Crete and there was a wonderful atmosphere of togetherness during the evening.

Captin Nikos and his wife were presented with medals for starting and running the island scout group and another medal was presented to Doctor Yorgos' wife Vanna who donated some land to the scout group.  Certificates were then presented to Petros the mayor of the island, Father Luke, to people who had organized food and accommodation to the participants and to the members of the Fun(d) Raising Group who had bought equipment for the scouts with money raised at fund raising events like the summer and winter quizzes and the biannual bazaars.

We were very pleased to get an invitation from Captain Nikos to the event and we can only hope that this will encourage scouting on Alonissos and put Alonissos on the map across the scouting community in Greece.
