Come out for Venturer Scouts fundraiser


The Haines Venturer Scouts are having an Australian Outback Steak and Shrimp Dinner and fundraising auction 5 p.m. Saturday, April 5 at Harriett Hall. Proceeds will go toward the scouts’ upcoming trip to Australia. Nineteen scouts are going on this trip! In the last two years, you’ve probably seen them chopping wood, shoveling snow, selling Christmas trees, serving burgers at the American Legion and helping at many events around town. They have been working very hard to raise money.

In the next few weeks, scouts will be asking for contributions of artwork, crafts, baked goods or signature items that showcase your business. We’re hoping people will think outside the box and maybe contribute something a little different to make the auction exciting! Call Christy at 314-0444 if you have an auction item, gift certificate or door prize you wish to donate.

We know this is a tough time of the year and this town gives more than it has, so please know how much your support is appreciated!
