Yesterday a press release stated it was a good start for the 148th Pontiac Scout troop, who had a nice surprise last Saturday when they visited the Canadian Tire in Shawville, where they were given a lot of new equipment worth almost $ 1400.
This traditional scouting unit started its regular seasonal activities over the last few months in Fort-Coulonge and welcomes young people aged 12 to 17 through the Pontiac. Materials donated by the Canadian Tire Jumpstart Foundation of Quebec include propane, reusable water cans, shovels, rope and coolers. This contribution will allow the troop to participate in their first major event, a Jamboree bringing together troops from all over Quebec this summer. Nearly 400 people are expected in Fort-Coulonge for this summer get together.
The 2017 edition of the Jamboree of the Association of Adventurers Baden-Powell AABP will take place on the grounds of Patro de Fort-Coulonge, from July 28 to August 6.
