Over the last few months based on feedback from the Patrol Leaders Council (PLC) the Scout Section have been working on their Emergency Stage 3 Adventures Skills badge. This has involved the scouts learning the various aspects of Stage 3 and then demonstrating that they have the required skills and knowledge through completing various scenarios such as treating a nose bleed, wasp sting, making a bandage from a neckerchief, a coat stretcher etc.
In order to complete Emergencies Stage 3 the Scouts must understand and be able to perform CPR. Our local First Responder Group, Athenry Community First Responder Group very kindly donated their free time to teach the Athenry Scouts CPR. This took place in our weekly meeting with the entire meeting devoted to CPR Training. A big thank you to the Athenry Community First Responder Group for donating their time and helping the Scouts learn CPR.

What a great turn out from the Beavers, Cubs and Scouts for the 2016 St Patrick’s Day Parade. Some many brilliant and exciting costumes based on the parade theme of “Rebellion”. Thank you to all the parents who helped with the costumes. A big thanks to all of the Scouts who built the camp site float over a long evening on Wednesday 16th March. Your help, enthusiasm and skill are greatly appreciated.
Due to all of your efforts the 19th Galway Athenry won one of prizes at the Parade. Well done to everyone involved.
Thank you SIP Energy for allowing us to borrow your truck for the parade.
The photographs below are just a snapshot of the day. There is a full set available.

The cubs had a great visit to the Cummins Dairy Farm, DerryDonnell on Tuesday 8th March. All of the cubs were kitted out in their wellies and hats. Everyone had a great time watching and feeding the animals. Some of the Scouters had a go as well, even those who grew up on a farm.
