Boy Scouts, trees & OPSEU

Thank you note from Barrie's 1st Mapleview Group for a contribution to their ScoutTrees program from OPSEU's Environment Fund.

On April 29, 2008, Scout Troops from across Simcoe County participated in the annual Scouts Canada Scout Trees program.

Thanks to a generous donation from OPSEU’s Green Fund, the Scouts from Barrie’s 1st Mapleview Group were able to purchase trees and refreshments for the event.

The planting took place at Springwater Provincial Park near Barrie, in an area designated for reforestation.

The day was overcast and threatening rain, but the bad weather held off long enough for the Scouts to plant over 1,200 trees.

1st Mapleview Group thanks OPSEU Environment Committee Members Gino Franche, Sandra Snider and Jennifer Giroux for their wonderful support.

Yours In Scouting,

Lynn Rogers,
Group Commissioner
1st Mapleview Scout Group
