Today, August 1, is World Scout Day, where we celebrate the foundation of Scouting around the world, and all those who make it possible.

To raise awareness of this, Scouting members wear our scarves today.

As part of the celebration, we award Scouting volunteers for their service to the organisation.

I have been awarded the Silver Wattle:
"Awarded for outstanding service to Scouts Australia as an Adult Member in an active Leadership role, for a period of around ten to twelve years. ‘Outstanding service’ is defined as a performance at a consistently high standard, normally over a number of assignments, all of which have provided positive outcomes for Scouting. This person’s contribution to Scouting clearly stands out from that of [their] peer group." -- scouts.com.au/about/what-is-sc

Other awardees can be found at scoutsvictoria.com.au/about-us


Yesterday I went to Gilwell Park Scout Camp for the Scouts Victoria Adult Recognition awards, and was awarded my Silver Wattle (see previous post for details).

I also had the pleasure to see James, a Rover and one of my previous scouts, receive a Special Service Award. It's always makes me so proud to see the scouts I have mentored grow up and become independent, competent, mature, and generous young adults.
