The activities continued to come thick and fast for the Scouts during the first part of 2014.
The highlight of the period was the presentation of 6 Scout Chief Scout Awards/Bronze President Awards and one Silver Presidents Awards. For a teenager to achieve this prestigious award they have to take on a lot of challenges/projects over at least a twelve month period. On Saturday March 1st, at a lovely presentation attended by John Watmore (Provincial Commissioner) and Trish Blake (National Commissioner for Ventures) the Scouts received their Awards. The Bronze President Award Recipients’ are: John Galbraith, Ciara McCabe, Ciara Moloney, Derbhal Reid, Shauna Fitzgerald and Rebecca Toohey. Niamh Marks received the Silver President Award. Other highlights include the election of Amelia Lown to the South Eastern Province’s Youth Forum panel for Scouts representing the Scouts in the Province; a night hike climbing Arderin in January; a first aid training day, including training provided by the Civil Defence, Red Cross and paramedic trainer (Brian Bruno); the climbing of Galtymore; and an evening trip to the Greyhound racing in Thurles.
