Seven years ago, Good Turn Week was created to promote goodwill gestures both within Scouts Canada and in the community. Since its establishment, Scouts Canada has funded many Good Turn Week projects but the philosophy behind this week does not just include grand scale projects, it also consists of small acts of kindness such as opening a door for someone or buying someone a meal. These acts of kindness go a long way and do not go unnoticed.
Every year, Scouts have participated in this week, working together to help strengthen their society and keep it healthy. Good Turn Week takes place from April 22 to May 1, 2016, and all Scouting youth as well as youth in the community are encouraged to participate.
As the founder of Scouts, Lord Baden-Powell has said “The most worth-while thing is to try to put happiness into the lives of others” The 1st Haney Beaver Scouts are fulfilling this vision completely.
This year one of the Groups in Three Rivers Area is participating as one of the official projects in this years’ national campaign. The 1st Haney Beavers along with help from older youth and other section Scouters will be revitalizing the garden outside of the Rehabilitation Unit of the Ridge Meadows Hospital.
