bullet On 5 occasions the troop "manned" the Salvation Army "Kettles" in Tisdale Co-op helping to collect money to purchase items for Christmas Hampers (food and toys) for the less fortunate in the community. (See photo's below).

Our last troop meeting prior to Christmas was followed by a Christmas dinner served with all the trimmings!! (See photo's below).

My goal is to bring like minded people closer together and it is that alone that makes our volunteering all worth while.

We look forward to continuing our volunteer duties in 2012.

God Guard Thee and All Who Serve.
