In 2007, the National Scout and Guide Fellowship St George's Guilds of Norway adopted an ambitious plan for expansion. As a result, the national leadership decided to cooperate with resource persons in the fellowship, to inspire them and provide them with tools for their efforts for expansion.
We are now registering the results in a survey. Several new guilds have been founded, and we are getting positive responses from the districts.
In spring 2008 district leaders were invited to a weekend gathering with the following elements in the programme:
On 25th September 1987 the Jamboree monument was erected by the Dutch National Scout and Guide Fellowship to commemorate the event. After restoration, it was re-unveiled on 9th May 2009 by three former Scouts who participated or visited the Jamboree at that time in 1937. The event took place at the same spot where it was erected in 1987 where the Jamboree had been held.
On April 19th, 2009 the committees of the Belgian and the Dutch National Scout and Guide Fellowships, the Vlaamse Oud-Scouts en Oud-Gidsen (VOSOG) and Plus-Scouts Nederland, traditionally gathered for the 35th time.

Juan Salazar and Mathilde Zubieta accompanied by members of the Local Scout and Guide Fellowship of Panama City
As the Local Scout and Guide Fellowship (LSGF) told me "this was the first time we have de opportunity of having Fellowship visitors from another country".
The Panamanian Guild welcomed us in a really perfect Scout Spirit. They showed us how true the meaning of the word, "FELLOWSHIP" is.

The Kingston (Ontario, Canada) Scout Museum will be officially opened on Sunday, February 17th with a Ribbon-Cutting Ceremony and a Dedication at 2 PM.
