Spolumbo's Sausage Sale

Spolumbo's Sausages sales are closed and the order is in. Thanks everyone who purchased some sausages. The order is coming in fresh on June 13th, please schedule time to pick it up that evening at the Scout Hall.

Powderface Ridge Hike

The Scouts had an excellent hike up to Powderface Ridge with an elevation gain of 750m over 5km for an average grade of 20%! They kept moving all the way up and were in good spirits at the ridge and on the way down. Way to go!

Bottle Drives

The group is having their first bottle drive on October 14th and we are looking for as many volunteers as possible to come out and help. Each bottle drive can raise as much as $3000 for the group to help fund our activities throughout the year. Generally the group attempts to subsidize the programs of the youth through this fundraising to cover about 50% of the costs. This allows us to ensure that the programs are affordable across the board and available to all our youth.

Welcome Back

Well Hello Fellow Beavers and Leaders,

Welcome back to a new year of exciting Beaver action!

We are all looking forward to another great year of fun activities and leadership learning opportunities for all of our new and existing members.

We are happy to welcome Stephanie Mitchell to our Beaver colony. Stephanie has been a volunteer within our group for many years now, but has recently decided to join up with the beavers, and we are very fortunate to have her.

We would also Like to welcome back Colin Garrett. Our very own "Rusty"!
After completing some schooling, Colin has brought his energy and leadership back to our group.
I can say that I am looking forward to some great floor hockey :)

We are off to a good start this year and have many fun and exciting things lined up in our program this year, so stay tuned for lots of fun!!!
