We’re please to share the following information about the Ridge Meadows Search & Rescue Annual Tree Chipping service. This will take place January 2nd/3rd and 9th/10th, 2021 at 9am-4pm. This service is provided by donation with proceeds going to help Ridge Meadows Search & Rescue!
Location: Search & Rescue Building at 23598 Jim Robson Way, Maple Ridge (next to Planet Ice / Albion Fairgrounds).
Unfortunately, due to the current COVID-19 restrictions impacting in-person Scouting activities, we’re unable to offer our tree pick-up service this year. We hope to provide this service again during the 2021/22 season.
Thank you for supporting 1st Haney Scouts and Search & Rescue!
We’re excited to start our season back up and running this September. We’re going to have a completely outdoor program with many health and safety precautions in place, following Scouts Canada policies as well as BC Public Health orders and guidelines.
We’re looking at some great activities to get rolling, including hikes, canoeing, kayaking, climbing (wild play) and more!
Our members should be hearing from their various section leads and youth leadership teams shortly. Stay tuned.
Our Christmas tree lot is opening on November 29th and will be operating 7 days a week until we’re sold out!
You can also schedule your tree pickup and chipping by donation by CLICKING HERE and completing a quick and easy form.
Lots of activities so far this season, including archery, lots of camping, skating, curling, canoeing; we attended Cub Skills, Cub First-Aid Day, the Maple Ridge Remembrance Parade, Christmas in the Park event, had a Halloween party, attended social camps including snow camps on Mt. Seymour and Manning Park, and much much more!
[Jun] We congratulate three of our Scouts for receiving their Chief Scout Award!
Matthew, Teowyn and Thenuja earned the required Outdoor Adventure Skills, completed the needed volunteer hours over their time in Troop, and completed a community service project.
[Dec] In August of 2017, Scouter Byron along with others raced to the scene of an accident, rescuing a family of 5 from a burning car, adminstering CPR, and ultimately saving their lives. This special act of heroism resulted in Scouter Byron being awarded the Silver Cross, one of Scouts Canada highest honors for valor. Caitlyn Piton our National Youth Commissioner came out to help with the presentation.
