MARK GARNER derful good turn he did for the boys attending the B.C. and Yukon Jamboree in 1966 at Pentlcton. The Scoutcraft section of the Jamboree program was in search of something that would serve as a souvenir of a happy week, something that they could make themselves. Bishop Scott, then of the Koot-enay diocese, sent a whole barrel of slices of ground cedar. This has a beautiful reddish heart, in fact nowhere else does this reach tree size. The Scouts sandpapered, varnished and branded these slices with the branding irons supplied by Scouter Rev. Peter Collins of Scoutcraft. What i souvenir of the Adventure Jamboree!
