Our Club looks splendid during the summer nights when the garden is illuminated. At times, passers-by have mistaken it for a bar (more popular in greek as a "store") and have entered, asking for a drink.

The neoclassic building
The Group is housed in a wonderful neoclassic building in the center of the city of Patras (neighborhood of Olgas square), in a strangely peaceful heighborhood, full of neoclassical masterpieces.
Spacious with attention paid to details, the two-floor building of the beginning of the century offers very functional -for the scouting game- spaces like storage rooms, garden, attic.
It is, undoubtedly, a reason for all of us, members of the Group, to be very proud and take care of it, sometimes more than our own home. Our "Store" is being renovated for the last year.

Here we are!
He filled with joy every corner in our Club.
A beloved figure of all Cubs, Scouts, Explorers, Leaders and friends of our Group. He followed us in our excursions, in our camps.
He liked to wander around in Patras' neighborhoods and especially in that around our Club. He had the peculiar habit of jumping on motorcycles and cars what passed by making a lot of noise and disturbing his peace.
We haven't seen him since summer of '96. Bon voyage our Sancho ... you were the most characteristic impersonation of an authentic and carefree soul.
We will never forget you.
