I wondered whether people could share how they have marked their long service in guiding, or the long service of others they have been involved in. I'm interested to see how these milestones are marked across the country - big presentations, local events, unit presentations, gifts. Who presented it? District Commissioners, Division Commissioners, County Commissioners....Did you know what was planned in advance/ were you involved? Or was it a surprise? I am curious I don't have a huge amount of experience of seeing long service awards presented, but to get things started... My 5 years was presented at a Division AGM (no district). I didn't have any involvement in it, this was "how it was done" in my area at the time. I'm now thinking about my 10 years which is due in the next few months. I once attended a 20 year presentation that was in a unit setting, leaders in the district were invited and there was a cake. The main event was presented by the Division Commissioner. I saw a 40 year award presented at a big division event once too. The lady was thoroughly embarrassed and received a large bouquet with her badge and certificate given by the Division Commissioner in front of all the Rainbows, Brownies, Guides, Rainbows and Leaders in the Division. Anyone else want to share?
