Apple Day is here!

Apple Day is here!

The fall is here and we are in prime apple season.  To a Scout that means that it’s Apple Day Time!

Apple day is a tradition that started right here in Canada!

Apple Day began in 1932 in Saint John, N.B., when 21,000 apples were handed out as a way for Scouting to say thank you to the community. As a result, donations were made to Scouts in return for receiving an apple. Since then, each October, Scouts have hit the community to raise funds for their programs.

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.

Apple Day this year will run on

  • Thursday October 13, 21016 in the evening.
  • Friday October 14, 2016 in the evening,
  • Saturday October 15, 2016 in the morning and afternoon.

Please be on the look out for Beaver and Cub Scouts and show your support for Scouting in Milton!
