Cleveland Den Officially Open!

On Saturday the 19th of October, his Excellency the Honourable Paul de Jersey AC, Governor of Queensland opened the new Cleveland Scout Den. What an amazing day, even with the rain! Some tears were shed as we remembered and reflected on the old Den and now, we have an incredible future in our new building. Thank you for everyone’s help today, we could not have pulled this event off without you.
