Yesterday was World Scout Day, which is celebrated all around the world, hence the name. Also on this day are when awards for Leaders are announced for service to Scouting. I am so thrilled to announce that I was nominated by my Regional Commissioner, and I will received an award. The Silver Arrowhead - for especially good service to the Scout Association of Australia over a period or 7 - 8 years.
Seven other leaders (whose names I can't mention), received awards in my region. 2 for the certificate of merit, 2 Silver Arrowheads (one which was me), and 3 Silver Koala's (my regional commissioner being one also).
We actually get presented with the medallion in November when the Chief Scout of Queensland makes his trek north for our Regional Conference.
