It starts with Scouts.

Northern Ontario maintains 9 properties within its 5 Service Areas which benefit members by providing a variety of locations for delivering exciting, year-round outdoor program activities.
Northern Ontario Council sadly announces the passing of:
Scouter Sandra Barnes
Sault Ste. Marie Area
Scouter Sandra passed today [October 27th, 2015]
Sandra was a proud Gilwellian, member of the 89th B.P. Guild and 21st Eastside Group in Sault Ste. Marie.
Sandra was an avid trainer and held the Award for Fortitude and the Bar to the Medal of Merit.
Given Sandra's enjoyment of life, she will be sadly mised by both family, friends and her fellow Scouters.
