The Kiwanis Club of Timmins has been sponsoring and support the local Scouts and Cubs for many years.

Scouts with the 1st South Porcupine Kiwanis Scouts are soon embarking on a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to engage in adventure, meet new friends, learn and explore as they venture to Nova Scotia for the Canadian Jamboree in July 2017.

Funds from the sponsor’s donation will be used to purchase tents, stoves, lanterns and other camp gear needed for the trip.

The Scouts are actively fundraising to assist in the cost of an eight-day camping trip to Nova Scotia, and are still seeking sponsors for this venture.

For donations, please contact Lloyd at 705-579-2179.

Dave Mavor recently met the scouts and presented them with a donation.
