A Lovely Evening (nothing crafty!)

I had a lovely evening yesterday (Friday).   I was requested to attend a County Review evening for the Guides.   I found out why - I was given a special award for Excellent Service to the County, as I am about to retire as the County Newsletter Editor.  My daughter was also in attendance and she was also presented with a different award for all her work as Website Co-ordinator and for her work in producing the biennial Power Point presentations for these special evenings including last night's.  After all the presentations, we enjoyed a lovely buffet and chatted to the various county dignataries in attendance, Mayors, Council Chairman, etc.

I was very honoured to receive this special award which is only presented by the County Commissioner of Sussex Central to a very select few.  Apart from a Certificate to be framed - this was the pretty silver brooch that I was given - you can see the Guide badge on the wing, and the SXC down it's body.

When I got home, I discovered my pal had called round with a huge bouquet from her nephew for making the "Fish" cake.  He and his wife were absolutely over the moon with it.   Another completely unexpected event!

How lovely Mag, your brooch is beautiful. I was a Brownie Guider for about six years
