A Colony Apple Day - 2012

UPDATE: Grand total of donations collected ...(drumroll)....just north of $2900!! A huge thank you to everyone in A Colony (Parents included!) who helped make this year a huge success!.

Apple Day 2012 Badges will be provided to all who helped out!
Apple day 2012 is almost here! Scouts of all levels have been participating in Apple Day activities in Canada for a very long time ....... in fact I remember going door to door as a Beaver and then Cub in Halifax, raising funds to support Scouting in Nova Scotia.

For the past couple of years, the good folks at Moncion's Independent have granted us permission to canvas in their store entrance. 2012 will be no different, A Colony will be joined by other local Beaver Colonies (And some Cub pack's) on Thursday October 11, and Friday October 12.

A Colony will be setup at Moncion's at 6PM through to 7:30PM, both nights. Just like a regular Tuesday meeting in our gym, we will be setup for Beaver sign in/out so you can drop off your child with us to participate in Apple Day. Hopefully you can find the time to join us on either or both nights, whichever fits into your family schedule best.

Don't forget, that we did some Apple day basket and tub decorating this week. We just got you started, the idea was that your Beaver can keep decorating at home.

Also, 1st Manotick is setting up on Saturday at St Jerome in the parking lot. If you would like to canvas the neighborhood, this is your chance. A Colony leaders may or may not be present on Saturday, so for this option Beavers are to be accompanied by a parents (i.e. no drop offs, no sign in/out required).  This link will provide more information about 1st Manotick's group effort.
