February Staplestown News_________


Kildare 22nd Scouting Unit had their first Beaver meeting in St. Kevin's club rooms on Tuesday 15th January 2002. Cub scouts are starting on February 5th 2002. Many thanks to St. Kevin's for all their help and of course the use of their facilities. Membership is full for both groups. Application forms are available for the waiting list or for anyone interested in becoming a leader. The more leaders we have the more children we can accommodate. If you are interested please contact one of our Unit Leaders: Vincent Waters at 045-869022 or Elaine Kane at 045-863572. The very best of luck to all the new scout leaders: Elaine Kane, Willie Kane, Maureen Barron, Ger Bendorf, Threasa Noone, Vincent Walters and Phyllis Walters. Well done for getting involved and taking on a very worthwhile job for the children of the area, and may we salute you all!
