Two prestigious awards were handed out at the 3rd Parkes Scouts Christmas Party last week.
Long serving Scout Leader, Barry Reid, was awarded the Silver Emu Award by Parkes Mayor Ken Keith for over 30 years of dedicated service to Scouts.
NSW Scouts Leader, Ben Williamson, and Regional Commissioner for The Golden West, Gavin Arnold also attended to con- gratulate Barry.
The second award went to Nic Unger who was presented with the Australian Scout Medallion, the highest achievement for a scout. To be eligible for this prestigious award, a Scout had to attend a Scout Leadership Course and achieve the Adventurer Cord. Nic also planned and lead a hike.
