The 950 Rocky Mountain Rangers are celebrating their 95th Anniversary in 2017! For 95 years the youth in Merritt and Nicola Valley have grown, developed, and became valuable leaders in our society.

We are hosting a fundraising event for the 950 Rocky Mountain Rangers and hope that you will be able to take part in one or more of the exciting events we have planned. Experience firsthand the pride we take in supporting the youth in our communities! 

A formal dinner, dance, and silent auction: “1920’s Blast from the Past Flappers Gala”, will be held on March 11, 2017. The proceeds from this event will be used to send a group of cadets on a citizenship tour to Vimy Ridge, France. A citizenship tour will help teach our youth a better way of critical thinking and gaining an awareness of global issues; while building confidence in their social skills, become better communicators and problem solvers, as a result of the international experience.

Our goal is to raise over $45,000.00 and send 15 cadets to Vimy Ridge, France, in April 2018. Currently, cadets and their parents are fundraising by doing: bottle drives, DD taxi services for different events, collecting egg cartons, and raffles. Our efforts have just started we have a long way to go to reach our goal, and we are trying to do all that we can.
