|Canadian Rangers return to Thompsontown Maple Products (March 2008)|
The Canadian Junior Rangers returned to Thompsontown in March of this year. Over 100 Junior Rangers, aged 12 to 18, from all across northern Canada spent the afternoon sampling maple taffy, enjoying a sleigh ride through the sugar bush and learning the proper techniques involved in tapping maple trees. Their visit was part of a week long cultural training excercise in Ottawa. They were amazed by the amount of snow we had on the ground and the damp cold temperatures. One of the big hits during the visit was the opportunity to see and get close to the cattle in the barnyard. Most had never seen cows before and enjoyed feeding them handfulls of hay.
|Canadian Rangers visit Thompsontown Maple Products (March 2006)|
|In March of 2006, a group of Canadian Rangers and Junior Canadian Rangers spent a day in the sugar bush on Clayton Lake. The Rangers were here during a cultural integration tour which involved experiencing activities not normally found in the northern regions of Canada. The group which was made up of troops from the Yukon, Northwest Territories and Nunavut, spent the day touring the maple sugar bush, enjoying horse drawn sleigh rides, sampling maple taffy on snow and learning how the sap is tranformed into syrup. Special thanks to Warrant Officer Perry Gresty for arranging the visit.|
