Appointment – Area Commissioner for Bluewater

It's my pleasure to announce that Mark Hornblower has been appointed as the new Area Commissioner for Bluewater Area.

Mark comes to the role with a great deal of experience in Scouting. Over the past two years he has held the position of DCC for Child and Youth Safety in Tri-Shores and over the past six years, he has been a key organizer of Bluewater Area’s summer outreach camps for cub aged youth from financially disadvantaged circumstances. At the same time, he has organized the area’s annual Food Drive and Hike for Hunger. Prior to this he spent three years each as the DAC for Growth and the Area Commissioner for Bluewater Area. A 24 year veteran of Scouting, Mark has been a Cub Scout leader for the full time and a Scout leader for 20 years.

Mark’s children can be thanked for getting him involved in Scouting many years ago. His son is a past recipient of the Chief Scout Award and his daughter is a past participant through the Guiding programs.

In his professional life, Mark is a Judge with the Ontario Court of Justice, presiding over Criminal, Family, and Youth Court matters. Over the course of his career, as a lawyer and a judge, Mark has always worked to ensure the rights of individuals are upheld and respected.

Please join me in welcoming Mark to his new role. He will be starting to form a new Service Team for Bluewater Area immediately so watch out if he heads your way.

At the same time, I'd like to take the opportunity to thank Steve Locke and all of the Area team for their efforts over the last couple of years. It's been a time of steady change and they need to be commended for their hard work in providing direction for the Area.

At your service,
Bernie Avery
