On June 6, two cub scouts from the 2nd Rossland Scout Group were awarded the Seeonee Award, the top award a scout can earn. It is also expected to be completed with minimal adult help. Emma Krajinovic and Mya Leask have been working on the badge since September. The badge requirements include 15 hours of community service and a meaningful service project. For their project, they went door-to-door to collect cash donations and pet blankets/towels for the SPCA. They presented $250 plus a basketful of blankets to the BC SPCA West Kootenay Community Animal Centre on June 4. Pictured here, Krajinovic and Leask are thanked by 2nd Rossland Group Commissioner Tom Leask. Photo submitted
