101st Brownies

  • Corporate body

In the spring of 1952 Kit Donaldson organized a group of 32 girls aged 7 to 10 years into a Brownie Pack originally known as the 7th Pack Brownies. Their first church activity was a Parent's Day Banquet. The girls would work towards many different proficiency badges that were generally awarded at a dinner that parents attended. There are no surviving records of their activities between 1955 and 1974, the same year that the group became the 101st Brownie Pack. In 1978, the age limit for Brownies changed to 6 to 9 years, and the Girl Guides included girls between the ages of 9 to 12 years. In 1981, there were 18 Brownies enrolled, but no Guide pack in progress for that year. It appears that a Pathfinders group, for girls aged 12 - 15 was established in 1988.

12th Port Arthur Group Committee

  • Corporate body

The 12th Port Arthur Group Committee was responsible for the Boy Scout, Cub and Beaver group sponsored by Knox United Church - Shuniah Street. The Group Committee first established the Boy Scout Troop in 1946. The first Scoutmaster was A.E. Moore. The troop varied in size, with the largest group, 40 boys, during that first year. As the years progressed, the numbers consistently stayed between 20 or 30 boys. By 1989, the Scouts were competing with organized sports and it was found to be necessary to amalgamate the troop with the troops from Our Saviour Lutheran Church and Current River United Church. The Cub Pack was started in 1951 under the leadership of Edna Bailey. The concept of a programme for boys too young for Cubs was initiated at St. Cuthbert's Anglican Church in Winnipeg in September 1971. In November of 1974, the Boy Scouts of Canada officially adopted the "Beaver" programme. The Thunder Bay District Beaver Co - ordinator initiated plans for a Beaver programme for Knox United Church - Shuniah Street. Their first meeting was on October 12, 1977 with June Hodgins, Bev Newman, Myles Penny, Gail Viklen and Mark Hunter. All three groups participate in age appropriate games, hikes, and badge training.
