Beavers Train Day 2019!
September 28, 2019
I just wanted to let you all know that 3rd Aurora Beavers have booked our annual special "Beavers Train Day" at the Richmond Hill Live Steamers outdoor scale model railway in Stouffville (McCowan and Vivian) and we would like to extend an invitation to Beavers their parents and Colony Scouters from neighbouring groups to come and join us again this year.
Richmond Hill Live Steamers offers Beavers the exclusive chance to ride on scale-modeled steam, electric and diesel trains through a beautifully forested property. More information about the facility and the club can be found at http://richmond-hill-live-steamers.tripod.com/ .
The cost to attend this unique and fun filled event will be $20 per person and includes a BBQ lunch. The Richmond Hill Live Steamers, who operate the facility as a not for profit organization, will also have their own event badges available for sale for those who wish to purchase them on site. All Beavers must be accompanied at this event by a paying parent or guardian.
Spaces made available on a "first come first serve" basis. Unfortunately due to the high interest in this event and limited number of spaces available(maximum 60 people total), this will be a Beavers event, with no spaces available for siblings or friends at this time.
Those interested in joining us for this event are asked to contact myself as soon as possible to arrange payment in order to reserve your spaces. This event is all but assured to be a fun time for all.
Yours in Scouting,
Scouter Kyle "Lightning" Munro
