This magazine throws a spotlight on the stories of more than 50 community groups and businesses, and over 110 people in Kilmore.

I’d like to thank each and every person who gave their time to share their stories.

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.”

He says that Scouts is a great way for adults to connect with the younger generation, particularly their own children. “I’ve got four boys and I loved being able to spend more time with them. It helps with our connection,” he explains.

With record numbers of young people involved at Kilmore Scouts, Jeremy says they are seeking more adult leaders. “Being a volunteer can be a really rewarding way to get involved in the community.”
