Once a month you’ll see the 1st Kilmore Scout Club sizzling sausages and hosting the monthly Kilmore market at Hudson Park. But behind there scenes, there is so much more going on.
Scouts have been active in Kilmore since the 1950s, explains president Jeremy Dickson. “We have a 65-year history of helping young people to become actively engaged in the community,” he says. “The program involves both boys and girls aged six to 15+, assisting them to develop life and leadership skills, particularly through outdoor living and adventure.”
