Rutherford Rotary Grant $900 to Iron Duke Sea Scouts

The Rutherford Rotary Trust approved a grant for $900 to assist with the purchase of new sails.

Peter Mc Gowan from Iron Duke sea scouts, who we are funding from the trust came to say thanks.
Iron Duke consists of 24 cubs with 6 leaders. The Troup has 3 leaders with 23 members. They also have a Ventures and Rovers group. The grant will be for new sails for their cutter.
Scouting had been in decline but 5 years ago they turned around the organization with growth of 3 to 4 % PA and now are proud to have 16000 members.
