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:)

Note the funeral pyre burning behind them.
The smiles all make sense now – thanks Hasdrubahl 🙂

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.

I didn’t win the award, I don’t need to be inclusive 😉

Jeez ed, does it have to be so Us and Them?

My sister was a Queen Scout with Hannah and they both kick arse. Easily better than you lot!

i left the scouts and joined the cadets, where they let us shoot guns.

and cadets was co-ed…

C’mon bonfire, get with the century, it must be 20 years there have been girls in scouts.

shouldnt she be in the brownies or guides ?

I only used the 100% genuine dead cow with press stud version myself.

i take issue with the use of a koala as a woggle. would have never have happened in my day.
shows that when you suppress good old fashioned bastardisation, standards start slipping.

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. 😛

Ha Dan!
I imagine she is a great girl, but I can’t help thinking of the ABC series “We can be heroes”, that had that charity girl as one of the Australian of the year nominees. Fargin’ funny.


Jesus christ you guys – bit of maturuty please.

Ralph – if you going to be so crass at least you could get the spelling right.

I’d hit it
