LETTER: Scouts appreciate community’s help

The Mission Scout Group recently held Apple Day in the community

Editor, The Record:

1st West Heights Beavers, Cubs, Scouts, Ventures and Rovers would like to extend our appreciation to the community for supporting Apple Day. Apple Day is one of Scouts’ Canada’s biggest community appreciation events. It provides  Scouting youth with an opportunity to show their appreciation to the general public for their support throughout the year. Our youth distribute apples as a way of saying thank you to the community.

We would like to especially thank Willow View Farms for their generous donation of apples, and Fraser Valley Building Supplies and Safeway Canada for allowing us to set up outside of their locations.

Scouts Canada is a non profit group that aids in the education and development of youth ages five to 27, with a focus on community, service and the environment.

More information about Scouts Canada, what we do, and how to join can be found at scouts.ca
