    Apple Day

    Posted on September 27th, 2017 by Scouter Donna

    Apple Day is October 7, 2017.  All sections will meet at Richard’s Memorial Church at 9:30am Saturday morning.  Youth will be broken into groups of two or three and sent to varies locations around our area of East London.  We ask that parents or Guardians plan on staying for the duration of the morning with their child.  Apple Day would not be successful without the help of parents!  Some locations will require a car to get to, but other locations will be walkable from the Church.  As the morning progresses a Scouter will be around to check up on all youth and give you more apples or switch your location if needed.

    We usually wrap up around noon on Saturday and ask that everyone meet back at the Church to hand in their money cans and remaining apples.

    There will be hot dogs, chips, and drinks available for all those volunteering back at Richard’s Memorial Church.

    If you have any questions please contact your Section Scouter.

    Thanks and hope to see everyone there!

    This week we are going to Zubicks.  105 Clarke rd.  We are going to see some cars get crushed and learn about many other things that they do with the metals.  It will be a lot of fun.  Our tour starts at 6:30 and will be approx. 1 hour, I’m asking everyone to try to be there by 6:20pm so our tour can start on time.  We will gather at the parking lot gates and walk in together.  A parent needs to stay with their beaver.  Please dress appropriately as we will be outside walking.

    Thanks to the generosity of London Mitsubishi we have the opportunity to go see a London Lightning game on Saturday April 15, 2017. 7:30 pm.  gates open 1 hour prior to start time!
     
    There’s just one catch, Scouts and London Mitsubishi thought this would be a great opportunity for us to also help the London Food Bank out. So for each ticket requested you will need to bring in a non perishable food item.  There will be a bin set up at the church for the section leaders to place the food into and keep track of the number of tickets being requested, or you can bring your food donation to camp and give to Scouter Phil.  You have till March 30th to get your food donation in.  Tickets will be picked up after march 30th and given out there after.
     
    So, if you would like 4 tickets, you’ll bring 4 non perishable food items. I food item = 1 ticket….. It’s a win/win for all and for the cost of a caned food item you save $13-$17 a ticket.
