One of our Scouts was presented with the award for the “Top Youth Popcorn Seller” in all of North Waterloo Area.  She sold over $2100. 

Congratulations Cori!

Scouter Peter was presented with the Murray Fried Memorial Scouting Award.  You will recognize Scouter Peter as the Manager of our local Scout Shop, but Scouter Peter’s roots are with 24th Kitchener.  He was a 24th Cub way back when and then a 24th Scout leader for many years.   Scouter Peter is the one that started our Annual Christmas Tree Sale 18 years ago! –  A tradition that continues today and is responsible for making Scout Jamborees and other events affordable for many Scouting youth.
