A message from the Governor General

For the past 120 years, the St. James Literary Society Inc. has been merging the social and the cerebral. Through its varied and impressive programming, the organization brings people from the community together. By creating opportunities for learning and dialogue, the Society also
fosters a greater understanding of the world around us.

When we are open and work together, we find the answers to our questions and the solutions to the issues facing our planet. On this milestone anniversary, I commend the members of the St. James Literary Society Inc. and all those whose efforts make it a dynamic and unifying organization.

Never stop being curious, asking questions and exploring new horizons. Keep aiming high!

Julie Payette
The Governor General

 

November 20: World Scouting Today

With the help of John Neysmith, you will learn that World Scouting today is not what you may think. Today’s Scouting is 110 years old, in 169 countries world-wide, with just over 50 million members of both genders. And Scouting is no longer a northern hemisphere, developed  country movement. Over 80% of our members are in the developing countries worldwide. The young people in these areas face a constant struggle to avoid the perils of drug abuse and the influence of street gangs.
