The North Grenville Beavers, Cubs, Scouts, and Venturers were busy with Apple Day last weekend; on Friday evening and Saturday morning, the groups were offering apples for free at various locations around Kemptville. Apple Day is a Scouts Canada tradition of showing appreciation for their communities. Any donations are distributed across the sections in North Grenville and used for programs and projects; thank you to the North Grenville residents for your donations over the weekend. It is appreciated!
There are close to 100 youth across the scouting movement in North Grenville. Thank you to community members, businesses, and organizations in North Grenville who support our local Scouting organization with encouragement, donations, volunteer time and resources during different events and activities over the year. In particular, thank you to the local businesses that supported us for Apple Day by allowing us to give apples at your stores: B&H Grocers, Bulk Barn, Dollarama, Dollar Tree, Food Basics, Giant Tiger, Jonsson’s Your Independent Grocer and the TSC. Thank you to Smyth’s Orchards for the apples.
In the spring, the North Grenville Scouts and Scouting Group as a whole received a community grant through the North Grenville municipal fund. Thank you to the Municpality of North Grenville for awarding us funds to support our outdoor programming; the funds we received went toward updating camping equipment to include light-weight stoves and pot sets for hiking, as well as a couple of new tents. The equipment will be used across the sections for a variety of outdoor experiences this year and onward.
