We don’t know yet how successful we were, but we went through at least one more basket of apples than we did last year. Here are a few photos from down at St. Lawrence Market this morning. We didn’t get any photos from Parliament and Carlton, but CTV came to visit and Amelia, Savhanna, and Morgan were on camera at various points. Not sure when it was to be used, but my guess was the 6 o’clock news. If anyone saw it, let us know.

Youth will be doing the direct requests, but parents are critical to success – ensuring adequate supervision and supporting the youth in what can be a challenging endeavour for them. The section leaders are few in number and already put hundreds of hours into running program for your youth. Your help is needed to make the group work.

Wear your uniform proudly and visibly! If weather makes this difficult, please at least ensure that your scarf is visible. Wearing an undershirt under your uniform can help and a sweater is usually less obstructive of your uniform than a coat or hoody.
