A number of our members attended a camp in Algonquin Park with a number of Scout groups. This has been an annual camping where the scouts experience sleeping in tents, cooking outdoors, take in a hike and go for a day canoe trip.
A number of years ago several MedVents and Scouts at this camp were awarded Scouts Canada's Medal for Meritorious Conduct for a rescue.
The members enjoyed themselves tremendously. They had to get up early on Sunday to get to the rallying point by Christie Pits in Toronto. Before the parade started we had learned how to march and carry the flags properly for the parade. After a long walk, we all got to enjoy some pizza!!!
On Sunday, November 8th, the new Markham MedVents gathered on Yonge Street to show their support and respect in the 2015 Richmond Hill Remembrance Day Parade.
This was our first Remembrance Day Parade. I would like to thanks all our members who participated. We wish to also thank the Town of Richmond Hill and to 5th Richmond Hill Scout group for inviting.

Our first haunted experience service event was with The Royal Astronomical Society of Canada Toronto Centre" at their annual event Halloween Haunted House held at the David Dunlop Observatory.
We started off with providing first aid coverage for the event. At the end, we assisted with the rest of the event. We loved this haunting experience. We cannot wait for next year's event.
