Kimberley Boy Scouts prepare sandbags

Ready for winter with Boy Scouts sand bags, all proceeds support Scouting activities.

Kimberley Scouts and parents load up a winter's worth of sandbags.

The Scouting groups of Kimberley and Marysville are participating in their annual Sandbag fundraiser.  This Saturday, at 9:00am, the bagging bee commenced and delivery to local supporting merchants got underway. Willing hands and enthusiasm make short work of a thousand bags.  Local residents can purchase the bags at Kimberley Husky, Centex Mini-mart , Mark Creek Market, Kimberley Shell, Kimberley Building Supplies, The Country Store  and Overwaitea (after Halloween). Sand supplied by Salvador Ready Mix.  The bags are identified with the Scout Logo and are still $4.00, all the proceeds going to local scouting activities.
