Royal Order of Barnaby
Through most of the 1960’s-early 1980’s Barnaby Beagle was often seen around camp or various events. He was a true and faithful companion to all Scouts. As a way for us to thank those who have worked especially hard for our Association, from time to time these members have been awarded a special recognition, the Royal Order of Barnaby Award. As it says on the certificate: “not because you may look like a dog, or may smell like a dog, but because you work like a dog, for the Suanhacky Campership Association”.
