Two of our leaders received Volunteer Recognition awards last night at the Glen Eira City Council’s Volunteer Recognition Program Ceremony.
Gary Brand received a Certificate of Appreciation for his 30+ years of service to Scouting. In reality Gary is into his 37th year of service!! Which is still a number I have trouble really comprehending!
Matt Minski received a Certificate of Appreciation for his 2000+ hours of service to Scouting. Matt lives for Scouting, just have a conversation with him and you’re instantly infected with his passion for his Scouting life.
We are lucky to have two very devoted people providing such a rich and rewarding experience to our children. It was a lovely evening of music, words and food, and a thoughtful gesture to all the volunteers in our district.
Four of our Scouts were also present. Ironically they were volunteering their time to usher people to their seats and also helping to serve supper. I received so much positive feedback from the staff and guests about the behaviour and manner of our Scouts. They were truly mensch’s last night. Thank you Sascha Bajayo, Josh Kanarek, Dara Arndt and Aidan Silver.
