LEADERS of the First Jordanstown Scouts at St Patrick’s Church are calling on former members to help celebrate the group’s 75th anniversary.

Organisers of the anniversary celebrations have appealed for anyone who was a member of the group to search high and low for any old photographs, home movies, memorabilia, or if you have a wealth of Scouting experiences from your time with the group to share, to get in touch.

Coming up in June, the Scouts will be holding a series of events to mark the anniversary.

On Friday, June 8 between 7pm and 9pm former members can attend St Patrick’s Hall to see the present day activities of the Scouts.

On Sunday, June 10 the group will hold its Youth Parade and Service in St Patrick’s Church at 6.30pm.

And the 75th anniversary dinner will be held in Whiteabbey Masonic Centre at 7.30pm.
