By virtue of Mr. Manfred Chan, who
submitted an application to Scouts Canada in 1986, the 2nd and
Bogside Scout Groups were officially founded and registered with the
Vancouver Coast Region, and a Sea Scout Group was later registered in the
Coquitlam district, Fraser Valley region, British Columbia. These three groups are also known
as the Sea Dragon Sea Scout Group.
In the course of sixteen swift years, the wide
range of activities conducted by the Sea Dragon Sea Scouts and their conduct
during these events became their brilliant history.
From two crews to nine sections, the
evolution of the Sea Dragon Sea Scouts materialized step-by-step, credit
going to the consistent support this organization had from the Chinese
Community. Hard working and utmost services offered by the leaders
continuously in the past as well as at present also served to further
develop this group.
Sincerely, I would like to pay my warmest
tribute to those who endeavored to promote Scouting. Furthermore, I also
hope that all of us will carry on the tradition and open a path to those who
follow in our steps to promote Scouting with unified strength and
experience. The younger generation can develop their potentials though
participating in Scouting activities. May the Sea Dragon Sea Scouts proudly
march onward to the twenty-first Century.
Since it's establishment, the Sea Dragon
Sea Scouts strictly follow the highly respected principals of Scouting -
endeavoring to guide our young members to develop their potentials and to
building up their perfect personality to better serve society.
On the occasion of the Groups sixteenth
Anniversary, I would like to celebrate this particular year with a few words
addressed to our members.
Please continue to carry on the past
traditions and open a path for the youth that are willing to serve the
Community by helping each other respectfully.
