QUEENSLAND'S chief scout, Governor Paul de Jersey will be in the Redlands again this weekend to open the new Cleveland Scout Hall on Saturday.
The original hall and much equipment was lost in March last year, when it was burnt down in an arson attack.
Several groups were impacted by the fire and memorabilia was lost, marking the Baden Powell Guild's 35-year history.
It also impacted on the Redlands Bonsai Society. Rotary's shed also adjoined the scout hall.
The opening will be on Saturday at 10am.
Cleveland Scout Group leader Andy Hall said guests would include senior members of the state and local scouting community, local scouts and families, donors, Redland community group representatives, volunteers, businesses and government.
"It will be a great opportunity for the scouting community to pay tribute to the generosity of all sectors of the Redlands community, that came together to make sure the hall was rebuilt bigger and better after the devastating fire," Mr Hall said.
"It's hard to believe we've reached the end of a long and sometimes painful journey.
"However, we are delighted that the outcome is a modern, new facility for the whole community to enjoy - not just Cleveland Scouts.
"While there are many donors who deserve to be acknowledged, I would like to thank ... Division 2 Councillor Wendy Boglary, Liona Constructions, Capalaba Rotary, Ashcroft Architects and Colonial Landscaping."
The event will end with a tour of the facility and refreshments provided by Cr Boglary and volunteers of the Redlands Cancer Council and a sausage sizzle by local Young Vets.
Venturer Scouts will live stream the ceremony as part of the annual Scouts JOTA/JOTI (Jamboree over the Internet).
Community members are welcome to attend.
