The North Grenville Beavers, Cubs, Scouts, and Venturers were busy with Apple Day a few weekends ago, offering apples for free or by donation at various locations around Kemptville. Apple Day is a Scouts Canada tradition of saying “thank you” to their communities. Any donations are distributed across the sections in North Grenville and used for programs and projects. Thank you to all of the North Grenville residents who had an apple, or offered a donation, and chatted with the youth about their activities.
There are close to 100 youth across the scouting movement in North Grenville. Thank you to community members, businesses, and organizations in North Grenville who support our local Scouting organization with encouragement, donations, volunteer time and resources during different events and activities over the year. In particular, thank you to the local businesses that supported our Apple Day activities by allowing us to offer apples at your stores: B&H Grocers, Canadian Tire, Dollar Tree, Food Basics, Giant Tiger, Grahame’s Bakery, Jonsson’s Your Independent Grocer, TSC, and Walmart. Thank you to Smyth’s Orchards for the apples.
