Paddling to Canada's Centennial - 50 years ago

As the country prepares to celebrate 150 years since Confederation, staff at the Archives at Whitby Public Library have been busy preparing three fragile scrapbooks to mark the 50 anniversary of an extraordinary journey.
In 1967, the 5 Whitby Venturer Scouts canoed from Whitby to Montreal for Canada's 100 birthday. They paddled the routes of Canada's Indigenous people and early fur traders and camped beneath the stars all while keeping a very detailed diary of the trip.
We scanned 137 pages, transcribed 17,842 words, and rehoused 111 photographs and postcards into archival envelopes so that we can share the story of the 5 Whitby Venturer Scouts with you.

Wouldn't it be nice to be recognized for your volunteer years, special efforts and hard sweat? We have a co-ordinator to help you with just that. Scouts Canada has a wide range of awards and pins to show thanks to its volunteers but it needs you to initiate the process. You can suggest a name, write out what you know about the Scouting efforts of the individual, then submit it to the committee for consideration. For more information about awards, contact Terry Eldridge.
