A Warm Hello,

Fellowship Day is an opportunity for all of us to reflect on the actions we have taken not only to build new friendships but to bring quality to the friendships we have already established.

It is nice to think that our brothers and sisters are thinking of us on this day, but what have we done to show them that we are thinking of them? Communication with each other is an important factor in what makes us a successful organisation because we take the time to listen and respond to each other.

Some of our members are increasing in years and may not be able to go out to Gatherings as often as they used to. Or they could be in a retirement home. Think of these members, as they have worked hard for Scouting and Guiding as well as the ISGF over the years and deserve our time and support so they do not feel forgotten.

On this Fellowship Day may everyone with the Scout and Guide Spirit have a wonderful day.

Brett D. Grant

Chairman ISGF World Committee

Underneath you will find a splendid story how to involve those who cannot attend gatherings anymore.

gift_to_Rosa_CuracaoDuring the recently held 1st Caribbean sub-gathering in Curacao, “Copernicia”, the Curacao National Scout and Guide Fellowship, had the idea to make a donation to an elderly home where some of their members are staying. By doing this, also those members indirectly and symbolically had a participation in the gathering.

Rosa Romer, who is a honorary member of Copernicia, is now 86 years old and she was a Founder Member 25 years ago and also in the first Board.

In the picture Rosa receives a donation on behalf of the elderly home where she stays. She was very honored and happy and she even sang the “Promise Song” during that special occasion.

This message goes to all my ISGF friends throughout the World. On occasion of the upcoming Fellowship Day, myself and my wife send you heartfelt greetings. May we live to see less war and more love in the world!
Some of us will soon meet in Ayia Napa, Cyprus. We’re really looking forward to that.

We have celebrated this day in quite a large group, remembering various moments in our activity; a few active scouts also joined us. It was nice and moving and we felt together with all of you. We trust you felt the same.

On behalf of the Austrian Fellowship I send to all of you the very best wishes for a joyous and great Fellowship Day Gathering or Meeting or any event you provided to celebrate this very special day.
Do we use this day to think on all our friends, wherever they are and whatever they do this moment. We are united in the Bi-Pi-Spirit and try to better our world a little bit. Together we can do that. International Secretary of NSGF Austria
