Apple Day is a traditional October Scouting public relations event which combines fund raising with a thanks for community support and is normally held on the Saturday following Thanksgiving Day. This year all our sections went door to door and did shifts at the mall raising nearly $1000 towards our activities.
Also in October, we joined with 6th Burlington Cubs for a hike to the Dundas Valley Conservation Area to see the fall colours, and the old train station...
The weather was great, if only a bit cold, as we returned to Lowville in early November for our annual Fall Camp. On the Sunday of the camp we had a Fall Family Fair, complete with mini-putting and face-painting.
In early December we once again look part in Lansing Buildall's Kids Helping Kids program as a service activity. Just before Christmas each year the local Lansing branch partners with Benjamin Moore Paints to stage this event. Neighbourhood children between ages 8 and 12 are invited to the store to paint wooden toys, which are donated to area groups for distribution to the community’s sick or needy children at Christmas.
