The 94th Hits 40:
The Our Lady of the Assumption Scout Group in Walkinstown was founded in 1967 and was granted a charter that year as the 94th Dublin.
The group had several temporary homes until November 1980 when our existing Den on Bunting Road was officially opened.
Since its foundation the Grey and Yellow necker of the 94th has become well known. The group has become one of the best known and most active Scout Groups in the country.
It is fitting that we should celebrate such a milestone in the same year as Scouting celebrates its centenary; we have a large number of scouts attending the Centenary Jamboree in England later in the year.
To celebrate our anniversary we have organised several activities these include; a group camp in Co. Down which will be attended by approximately 100 adult and youth members, an anniversary Ball in March 2008 and to celebrate the 40th anniversary of our first scout summer camp fifty plus members are heading off on a three week trip to the US and Canada in 2008. We will also host in November 2007, the annual Dublinia Scout County Mass as part of our celebration.
The current members of the Group would like to pay tribute to those that have come before us; to all former adult and youth members of the 94th we hope you are proud of the legacy you have left behind you.
