Seasons pass as the new Scout Headquarters is built. After a Christmas-time planning meeting, work begins under snowy conditions. Soon the weather is warmer as bricklayers and carpenters go about their work and younger boys help with gardening and path laying. This film records an impressive example of what teamwork can do. Everyone pitches in and the result is a shared space for the whole community.
