It is Jubilee at KISC28.03.2013
The term Jubilee means a celebration of an anniversary; this is also a season of joy! What a good way to explain why we are all joyous this year! We are turning 90 seems too old yet again too young and we will celebrate our birthday all year long. Celebrate with us! Over the weekend, KISC welcomed its Committee in their official meeting and we were very happy to have them here at the Centre; they had the chance to meet all our Pinkies and even taking part of some special activities that we usually have for training the short-term staff every season such as the Graduation Night. Our shorties are totally trained and joining our long-term staff working now in pink and we are expecting a great job from all these volunteers for the next three months enjoying the spring in Kandersteg. They also enjoyed a full day on the snowy alpines huge mountains that surround our small town, even passing by a frozen lake during the Adventure Day that involved one amazing hike the Gemipass and then sledding in the way back. Speaking of spring, KISC is still a little bit of winter but we are waiting for flowers while the birds are happily singing in the trees like Baden Powell said “a Scout smiles and whistles under all circumstances”. This week also saw the Supporters’ Weekend that was scheduled for 19th- 21 April 2013 and postpone it to 11th-13th April 2014 where we look forward to many Supporters! As part of our Jubilee Year activities we are joining the Kandersteg village on Easter Sunday in front of the Church for the Egg Tapping with the local musicians and local stores association where Scouts from around the world will challenge the people in Kandersteg while we raise funds to support a local project in Nepal.
Also we are getting ready for our main celebration in May because the Centre was opened officially during that month in 1923 and we are preparing a nice Jubilee Weekend to celebrate the 90 years of living the dream at KISC with BP’s dream of a ‘Permanent Mini Jamboree’ has been living day after day, year after year. We are celebrating the 90 years of bringing this ongoing dream to life and you can be part of it.
