"Connecting Heritage through Scouting" this is the theme of the International War of 1812 Scout Brigade at Fort George in Niagara on the Lake Canada where close to 3000 scouts gather this in their 28th year to reenact battles of the War of 1812 fought here where the mouth of the Niagara River meets Lake Ontario. On Saturday they march into town - right down main street - the British/ Canadian first and the Americans/Yankees second. It was the 2nd year for my younger son and the 6th for my older one who was actually part of an Artillery Unit this year. It is this Artillery Unit that they built the Cannon for. Although many hands on woodworking skills were learned it was the team building - or not where the greatest lessons were learned. " There is not I in Team" It is a hard lesson to learn. A bit of Mutiny at times. . . . . Here they are with the finished product. They had a great time making new friends and Pizza at midnight was a huge hit. This Artillery unit is separate from the enlisted men and you need to be 14 and up so it caters to the older scout- keep them active and interested!
