A Proud day for the 53rd.
On Tuesday 18th of July three of our Explorers received
their Republic Awards from the President of the Cyprus
Republic, Nicos Anastasiades, at the Presidential
Palace in Nicosia. Unfortunately the other five  Explorers
that completed the Republic  Award this year were away
with the Group on the trip to Kandersteg International
Scout Center in Switzerland, but did receive their Republic Award Badges with  their own
special ceremony at the Baden Powell campfire on the Campsite in KISC.
The Cyprus Scout Associations Republic Award is the highest Award gained by an
Explorer and takes about 3 Years of hard work to complete. The 53rd is extremely proud
to have Eight Explorers completing this Award this year.
