On Friday October 13th, 1st Shelburne Scouting will meet at Natasha Paterson Memorial Pavilion to shine apples and decorate baskets. 6:30pm - 7:30pm
Handing out Apples in Shelburne as a way to say Thank You!
On Saturday, October 14th starting at 8 am, Scouts will be giving apples to our community members to say thank you for your support.
Apple Day is a fundraising tradition that started right here in Canada.
This is annual event provides our 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. Donations are accepted in exchange, but apples are not sold.
Any money raised during Apple Day goes towards improving the Scouting program by provided more outdoor Adventures for youth, camping equipment, training and many other endeavours.
Each Group has a designated area to canvass including neighbourhood stores and other public areas. Many Groups will be out in your neighbourhood asking for donations — so please donate generously when you receive an apple!
You will see Scouts at the following locations throughout the morning and the first part of the afternoon: Foodland, Giant Tiger, Pete's Donuts, No Frills, Petro Canada, Macs Milk, Champ Burger
