Prominent Scout leader, "Mickie" Stacey dies; By TOM FURLONG

The scouting fraternity in Newfoundland, St. John's in particular, has lost one of its most indefatigable workers in the person of Alieen Stacey "Mickie", as she was known to members of the movement passed peacefully away at her home in Goulds on Sunday. Mickie was awarded the Long Service Medal in 1979 and the Medal of Merit in 1981. She had long ago earned her Wood Badge at the National Training Institute. She was involved in the Beaver program right from the start. On the institution of the program, in 1973, she became the first Assistant Provincial Commissioner, Beavers which post she held for 8½ years. She attended the National Workshop which launched the Beavers and it was her drive and enthusiasm that led to the establishment of the first Beaver colony at Vanier School. She coached the leaders both before and after the Colony was formally recognized and in spite of family commitments she always found time to spend with new colonies wherever they were formed in the province. She trained the new leaders and managed to be there for on-the-job training when required so that the new section would be well and truly on its way. Mickie launched The Beaver Bag, a publication for leaders on the new section and was a regular contributor.

Scouting ADDENDUM - GONE HOME by Tom Furlong
Scouts across the province, and indeed, across the Nation were saddened this week to learn of the death of Mickie Stacey. Mickie had been a tower of strength to the movement in promoting the Beaver Section. She had also been involved in many Training Teams and in the planning and running of Jamborees at the provincial, national and international levels. She was the proud possessor of the Gilwell Beads and held the long service medal and the Medal of Merit and was active in all facets of Scouting during her career. We extend our sincere sympathy to her family.
