Fundraising for the national Jamboree

Ashcroft Scout Group is looking for travel funds to take them to this year's national Jamboree.

The 1st Ashcroft Scout Group is raising money to send two members to the 2013 Canadian Jamboree that will be held in Sylvan Lake, Alberta.  Thanks to the Lowe family of Ashcroft, we now have a troop pennant and pole carved by Bernie Lowe from the second Canadian Jamboree in 1953 which 1st Ashcroft attended.

There have only been two other Canadian Jamborees since 1949 held this close to BC. Both Scouting and this community place great value on tradition and history, and we will be excited to bring that pole with us to show our pride in our community and its history. If you would like to make a donation towards this once in a life time opportunity please call 457-6541.
