Scouting's Honours & Awards for Volunteers
Wouldn't it be nice to be recognized for your volunteer years, special efforts and hard sweat? We have a co-ordinator to help you with just that.
Scouts Canada has a wide range of awards and pins to show thanks to its volunteers but it needs you to initiate the process. You can suggest a name,
write out what you know about the Scouting efforts of the individual, then submit it to the committee for consideration.
For more information about awards, contact Terry Eldridge.
