Sandspit Junior Rangers have been busy

Submitted by Laurel MacNeil-The Sandspit Junior Canadian Rangers have been quite busy over the last couple of months.The Junior Rangers, along with the Masset Junior Rangers, spent Thanksgiving weekend at a campout at Gray Bay that led to clearing many fallen trees off the road to the campsite. This task was met with good spirits considering the big job at task.The Junior Rangers have run the movies in Sandspit for the last year. I think we ran a total of about 12 movie nights which has given the kids experience in responsibility and as cashiers.On Nov. 10 we picked three Junior Rangers and sent them to Prince Rupert to help out in the parade there for Remembrance Day and six stayed behind so there would be Junior Rangers in the parade for Sandspit.On Dec. 3, we met at the community hall and decorated the Christmas tree. This is always fun to do with the kids. The cedar boughs and the mistletoe over the door looked quite festive.On Dec. 19 we served brunch with Santa which was well attended by 69 parents and kids. This was another one of those things we did that taught the Junior Rangers about planning and doing things for others. The day was very long but quite successful. Thanks to the Gwaii Trust for the funding to put this on.Dec. 30 was the last movie of the year, Alpha and Omega. After cleaning up from this movie we had our Christmas party (a little late, but we were too busy before Christmas), a sleepover in the hall. A late night was had by all.On Jan. 9 the Junior Rangers met at the community hall early in the afternoon and took down the Christmas decorations, took some of our gear to our storage area and prepared for the Christmas tree burn which happened that evening. The Junior Rangers donated and cooked the hot dogs and hot chocolate for the Christmas tree burn. Thanks to the fire department for doing the burn.The Junior Rangers are getting excited about their upcoming campout with the Masset patrol at the end of January.Thanks to all who have helped and supported the Sandspit Junior Canadian Rangers.
