IT will be a special occasion when about 1000 members of the Lautoka Scouts Council gather at Fenner Park in the Sugar City next month for the Annual Scouts Rally.

Council media officer Dinesh Kumar said the event would celebrate 100 years of scouting in Fiji.

"This year, we are expecting about 1000 cubs, scouts, venturers, rovers, girls-in-scouting and scout leaders to participate as per the registrations collected," he said.

"The theme for this year's scouts rally is 'Building Bridges of Friendship'.

"For the grand opening program, our confirmed chief guest is Prime Minister Rear Admiral (Ret) Voreqe Bainimarama."

He said the opening program was scheduled for July 18 from 6pm until 8pm.

"Our Prime Minister would stay back a little longer after the opening ceremony and visit all camp sites and meet all scouters."
