This Sunday we were invited to participate in Hands Across the Border, an annual meeting of scouts from the USA and Canada. Since 1937, the event has featured a parade and meeting of scouts from the two countries. The meeting takes place at the Peace Arch, a scenic border crossing on the shores of the Boundary Bay.
This year’s program included a treasure hunt and our tent was included as one of the locations.
