Haynes Boy Scout Troop

Pioneers and Progress, Alix Clive Historical Club, 1974

The troop was started in 1958 under the leadership of Haldon Waldron with Clive Baker and Ralph Rhodes as Assistant Scout Masters.  Dave Rodgers and Reverend Thackeray of the Lacombe troop also helped a great deal with the organization and took the boys to camp the first year.  Since then they boys have been to many places for summer camps and some of these are: Eagle Lake, Prairie Creek, Clearwater River and their favorite place at the Blackstone River.  They have taken part in various community activities such as church parades, Remembrance Day Parade in Alix, the R.C.M.P. parade in Red Deer and also contributing to the Haynes Community Hall Building Fund.  Travelling with the Lacombe boys in 1967, seven members of the troop went to Expo in Montreal.  Other activities include Camporees, bottle drives, talent programs, and other schemes to raise money for the group.  The Canadian Legion in Alix has always been very helpful to the group by donating funds for the Scouts.

In 1963, Ralph Rhodes retired and Robert Fraser was appointed as Assistant Scout Master.  After fifteen years of being a very active Scout group the leaders recall many happy memories thanks to the co-operation of an interested community minded Group Committee and all of the parents.  The Haynes Scout Group is looking forward to many more happy years.
