I have had the privilege over the last few weeks to have presented many more Long Service and Good Service Awards together with a number of Leaders who have gained their Woodbadge.
Scouting offers many opportunities and experiences for our Young People and I have loved talking to them and finding out what it is they enjoy about Scouting.
As Adults we also get much out of our Scouting Role and it has been lovely meeting more Leaders and finding out about how you got involved in Scouting and hearing about what you get out of it. We all have times when things don’t go quite to plan and we all at some stage thing why are we doing this? Having spoken to many Young People across the District and as a Leader having seen Young People grow and challenge themselves I know exactly why we all do what we do.
I would like to say a big thank you to you all for all that you do and have done in the past to offer Scouting for the Young People in our District. I feel very privileged to be District Commissioner for Grafton District and am very excited about what 2018 hold for us.
Lastly I hope that you all have a very Happy Christmas surrounded by those who you love and I look forward to seeing you all in 2018
