The National Recognition Network has agreed on how to move forward with youth recognition in a way that respects the efforts of youth, while also upholding the place that has been held by Outstanding Service Awards.
As of today, going forward, all “Thanks!” button Commendations for ALL members of Scouts Canada can be processed and benchmarked if they are an active member. This includes those registered only as participants on the “myscouts” system.
Here are the details:
Thank you for your patience and efforts as the National Recognition Network sorted this out and came to a productive conclusion for all.

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
Cubs Have a Blast and Sweat it out
What an adventure for these youth to participate in the Dorchester International Cub Jamboree from Sept 22-24, 2017. The Theme this year was "How to Train your Dragon" and the weekend proved to be full of adventure & excitement. Even though the weather was hot, hot, hot, the Cubs were not swayed from competing in challenges and working together as a team.
