Guiding achievements by a septet of Peninsula youth were celebrated last week in a ceremony at Blackie Spit Park.

Seven Peninsula Rangers – Sandra Hipsz, Jayme Hall, Amy Dwyer, Kate Buttner, Millie Bradley, Illeanne Alexander and Megan Samson – received both the Bronze Chief Commissioner’s Award and the Silver Chief Commissioner’s Award.

Each award represents the completion of 18 different challenges in the areas of Guiding, global awareness, leadership and management, healthy living, environmental sustainability and outdoor adventure.

In addition to accomplishing the goals required, the Rangers also volunteered many hours as junior Sparks and Brownie leaders; at local senior centres; and in cleanup efforts at Maccaud Park and the White Rock Pier.

Samson also receive the Girl Guides of Canada Commonwealth Award.
