Bagging will take place Saturday Oct 19th 2019. Volunteers are welcome to come out in support of our local youth, starting at 10 a.m. at Resker Hall in Marysville.

You can also support local Scouting by purchasing your sidewalk and traction sand with a Scout Canada Logo on the bag. The entire $5.00 stays here in Kimberley, supporting youth activities all year. Vendors who donate the sidewalk space and collect on our behalf are Mark Creek Market, Kimberley Shell, Kimberley Building Supply, Kimberley Centex and Minimart, Save on Foods and Kimberley Esso.

Remember that supporting our youth is demonstrated by the Scout Logo on the bag.
