Last weekend for Earth Day and Pitch In Canada week the Golden Beavers and Cubs spent their Saturday morning helping to clean up our town by collecting garbage along the Rotary Trail next to the Kicking Horse River and around the Municipal Campground. Afterwards they enjoyed a wiener roast followed by ice cream thanks to the proprietors of the Golden campground.

Thanks also go to the campground for disposal of the collected garbage.

“Our Beaver Scouts promise to help take care of the world and the Cub Scouts promise to do a good turn every day, this was a perfect opportunity for them to put their promises into action and learn that they can make a difference in their local community” stated 1st Golden Scouts Group Commissioner, Julian England.

2012 was the forty-sixth Pitch In Canada week. The program is the largest environmental improvement campaign in Canada and is a partnership between governments, media, industry and the public. More than 3.5 million volunteers participate in thousands of projects each year.
