Autumn Fun!

[Oct-Nov] Throughout October and much of November, all sections were out and about having fun, which included ice skating (Troop), fire hall tour (Beavers), Remembrance Day parade and ceremonies (all sections), urban hike checking out various sidewalk tile mosaics, including one with the Cub Scout logo (Cubs), and our annual Group Halloween party (all sections). Looking forward to December, January and beyond this Scouting season!

Kick-Off Camping

[September] Both the Beavers and Cubs were out early this year kicking-off the season, camping in Golden Ears Park and Camp Whonnock, in Maple Ridge, B.C; even the Venturers were at Camp Mardi-Gras in Gibson’s B.C. The youth learned some valuable skills, including how to handle knives safely, build campfires, apply basic first-aid, and of course… we fit a few songs, skits and cheers in.

Good Turn Week

[May-30] Many youth and Scouters from all sections completed an official Good Turn Week project at the Ridge Meadows Hospital.  Funded by Scouts Canada, we were able to refurbish existing garden boxes, build new boxes, plant flowers, brought in some fresh soil and mulch, and planted a new Douglas Fir tree to replace one that blew down in a recent windstorm.

Here is a write-up and additional pictures about the project on the Scouts Canada site: http://one.scouts.ca/goodturnweek/all-project-list/hospital-garden-enhancement/
