Congratulations to the De La Salle Venturer Group who were awarded Venturer Group of the Year at the Waterford and South Kilkenny Regional mass on the 3rd of October last. The award was in recognition of the continued high standard of activity which the group has maintained over the past year. It is the second year running that the group has claimed the award and it was certainly well deserved by VL Owen Riordan and all the Venturers. Congratulations also to Paschal Guilfoyle who was awarded the Silver Medal of Merit and to Tom Casey who was awarded the Bronze Medal of Merit. The Scoutleaders of the 3rd and the 13th were presented with the medals by outgoing Regional Commissioner, David Rogers.
