A BIG THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO SUPPORTED THE WOODCREEK SCOUT GROUP WITH THIER CHRISTMAS TREE SALES AND THE BOTTLE DRIVE

Happy New Year to everyone, we hope that the holiday season was a joyous one for all of your families.

 

We had a very successful Christmas tree sales campaign in December and a great turn out for our bottle drive in January. These fundraisers help to subsidize our programs that we do with the kids. All of the money stays right here in the area.

 

For all of the coffee drinkers out there we have a year round on line fund raising coffee campaign that you can check out at www.scout-coffee.ca  All the info is there on line for you if you are interested in enjoying delicious coffee and supporting our Group at the same time.

 

Our group now also has a Skip the Depot account for you to have bottles collected from your house and donate the proceeds to our Scouting program. Once you get near the end of the steps, you can choose an organization to donate to, that is where you'll find 401woodcreekscouts. Please check out https://app.skipthedepot.com/401woodcreekscouts.

 

Our winter programs are back in full force. And we are busy planning the balance of the years events. If you have any questions on our programs please feel free to contact our Group Commissioner Tony Churchill at 403-281-1929.

Seniors Outdoor Club of Calgary

11 Senior Outdoor Club.jpeg

Members of the Woodcreek Community are invited to join the Seniors Outdoor Club of Calgary Tuesdays to snowshoe, cross-country ski and hike in our beautiful mountains and foothills. We are members of the non-profit Seniors Outdoor Club of Calgary who get up early every Tuesday to drive to the Montgomery Community Association parking lot.  There, we board a comfortable, coach-style, 55-passenger bus which leaves at 8 a.m. sharp and takes us to various trailheads in the mountains west of Calgary. We snowshoe/cross-country ski in the winter and hike in the summer.  Hikes are curated by a very experienced trailmaster. Participants group according to their fitness levels. Various levels of hikes, from moderate to challenging, are offered and led by experienced member volunteers. There are many benefits to membership - carefree visiting, snacking and snoozing on your way from/to Calgary on the bus, becoming part of a wonderful social community but, most importantly, scheduling a weekly physically active date with nature which is known to be so mentally restorative! Check us out at http://calgary-seniors-outdoor-club.ca/
