Hannah Lord is the Young Canberra Citizen of the Year

johnboy 19 April 2007 25

Katy Gallagher has announced that Hannah Lord bears the title of 2007 Young Canberra Citizen of the Year.

Some brief googling and a Scouts web page suggests this could be a picture of her:

Why is she so special?

“She has won a Queens Scout Award in 2005 and in 2006 was a Team Leader of 42 young people in the Solomon Islands Project as part of a United Nations and the Scouts ACT project.

She is also a member of the ACT Youth Orchestra where she plays both piano and the violin.

“Hannah’s compassion and dedication towards others in the community is commendable,” Ms Gallagher said.”

Bonfire: hang on, you joined the cadets for the guns.
But don’t most scout groups keep a well stocked paramilitary grade armoury in the cellar.

Well… don’t they. The scout group my friend was in a few years back did..

Oh wait, he was from Iraq:)

when I was that age I wanted to have fun and enjoy myself so I got blasted on booze and drugs.

It said on the website that she was a rover anyway Mecon and Ralph, which from what I can gather is the retirement home for Scouts that don’t want to let go and face the real world (ages 17-26 according the the website).

When I was that age, I felt the need to do something productive that would benefit both myself and the wider community while allowing me to further develop my great affitinity with nature. I joined Artillery…

Being in the army is like being in the Boy Scouts, except that the Boy Scouts have adult supervision.

shows that when you suppress good old fashioned bastardisation, standards start slipping.

Absent Diane Absent Diane 8:45 am 19 Apr 07

yeah and the scouts are such a fantastic organisation…apparently you are only allowed into scout if you are a theist of some sort. discriminative bastards.

Well deserved, I say.

Apologies 😛

I couldn’t help myself after Meconium’s comment. I will continue to contribute elsewhere with my usual high standard of commentary and opinion. 😛
