Many RcofTC members will remember Logan Rowley who completed some service hours with the club last year as he pursued his Australian Scout Medallion.
Good news in that Logan has since been awarded the medallion. Last week he wrote to president Maree to let us know of his achievement.
 
`Since doing my service hours with the club last year, I have since achieved my Australian Scout Medallion.
 
Last month mum, myself and a few friends and leaders went off to Melbourne where I was presented with my Medallion.
 
I have just received the photos that I had taken on the day and thought that this would make a good time to send them though for you guys at the club to see! I would like to thank everyone at the club for the efforts to fit me into the BBQ schedule so that I could complete my service hours, I greatly appreciate it and wouldn’t have been awarded me medallion without them!
 
On another note, my friend Regan is also wanting to complete his scout medallion and is after some service hours, I was wondering if you guys would be willing to help him out by having him come and help at some BBQ’s like I did? Would it be okay if I gave him your contact details?
 
I am willing to come and help out at BBQ’s as well if I am needed and I don’t have work.
 
Thanks again.
 
Logan
  
 
 
On Saturday, April 25, 2015 a massive 7.8 magnitude earthquake struck Nepal, just northwest of the capital of Kathmandu. It was the worst quake to strike the region in more than 80 years.
The area was hit with a second 7.3 magnitude quake just 17 days later, on May 12, causing further damage and suffering for those who had survived the initial disaster.
Nepal, well known for its rich cultural heritage and extreme tourism, is one of the poorest countries in Southeast Asia. The damage done by the quake put a strain on its citizens that will last for many years. Homes and historic temples crumbled, roads were damaged and communications made sporadic. There were avalanches on Mt. Everest, entire villages were reported destroyed, water systems in hillside villages were wrecked, terraced farms and cattle were wiped out and people's lives destroyed. About 9,000 people were killed, many thousands more were injured, and more than 600,000 structures in Kathmandu and other nearby towns were either damaged or destroyed. The earthquake was felt throughout central and eastern Nepal, much of the Ganges River plain in northern India, and northwestern Bangladesh, as well as in the southern parts of the Plateau of Tibet and western Bhutan.
