July 2013, Design a new 2nd Beaver Bank Name Flash. This will be on everyones uniform starting Sep 2013 and be our legacy.
The crest features a familiar image of a beaver, how familier , well think about the 'Friends of the Forest Float' that we put in the Canada Day Parade every year since 1999. Getting more familliar it should this beaver has in one way or another been on that float every year. Coloured by Beaver Scouts, Cub Scouts and Leaders. now when I say leader I mean us, that's right we were Beavers and now Venturers and soon to be Rovers and we along with other youth and adult members have been colouring this image year after year.
The beaver proudly rests over the traditional 2nd Beaver Bank name flash, and when worn on your right arm the beaver is looking forward, into the 'future'.
