Big Thank You for Your Support

I would like to give out a big thank you to all Beavers, Cubs, Scouts and most of all our parent volunteers  who came out and made our Bottle Drive a great success.

We were able to raise $1,282 that goes towards programing and equipment for our group.

Also, I would like to thank you the Parkallen Community League for the use of the Community Hall and residents of Parkallen for all the donations of bottles for our fund raiser and all the donation of food for the Edmonton Food Bank.
