The 5th Garry Oak Scouts host their annual Apple Day fundraiser on Saturday (Oct. 5) from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

All the Beavers, Cubs and Scouts will be in different locations across Oak Bay asking for donations and in exchange they will offer delicious apples donated by Thrifty Foods.

This year, you can find the Scouts at Pure Vanilla, Home Hardware, Tomley’s Market, Pharmasave and the Liquor Store at Foul Bay Road and Fort Street.

The purpose of this year’s fundraising  campaign is to support youth programs in the area and for future development at the Scouts camp site in Camp Barnard in Sooke.
