The Glengarry News - - News -

The Ap­ple Hill Scout Re­serve (AHSR) of Scouts Canada will wel­come the Glen­garry Pi­o­neer Mu­seum (GPM) His­tor­i­cal Driv­ing Group mem­bers to the camp on Satur­day, June 16 for lunch.

AHSR War­den Pa­trick Wall will greet 40 mem­bers of the His­tor­i­cal Driv­ing Group and pro­vide a brief overview of the prop­erty, its aims and ob­jec­tives and fu­ture plans in meet­ing Scouts Canada’s youth pro­gram­ming and ini­tia­tives. AHSR is a 300-plus acre prop­erty and has been op­er­at­ing since 1961 pro­vid­ing a venue for the Scout­ing move­ment.

“It will be a plea­sure to wel­come the Glen­garry Pi­o­neer Mu­seum (GPM) His­tor­i­cal Driv­ing Group to Ap­ple Hill Scout Re­serve, which is a Scouts Canada Camp since it opened in 1961. To share the his­tory of the camp, and more im­por­tantly its mis­sion to pro­vide a place for youth to ex­pe­ri­ence many out­door ad­ven­tures will be a high­light of their trip I’m sure,” said Mr. Wall.

The GPM in Dun­ve­gan has been con­duct­ing tours for the past ten years by vis­it­ing lo­ca­tions within Glen­garry County.

“The Glen­garry Pi­o­neer Mu­seum looks forward to vis­it­ing the Ap­ple Hill Scout Re­serve. We know that this camp is an in­te­gral part of Glen­garry and for the scout­ing ex­pe­ri­ence for youth in Canada. I for one am look­ing forward to the camp­fire songs as per­formed by a num­ber of our tal­ented mu­sic stu­dents from the area,” said Stu­art Robert­son of the GPM His­tor­i­cal Driv­ing Group.

This year’s tour will in­clude Green­field, Ap­ple Hill and Maxville.
