Council Recognition Dinner & Silver Beaver Award


Council Recognition Dinner
Saturday, April 14, 2018



The Silver Beaver recognizes adult volunteers for exceptional service to Scouting at the council level. The Silver Beaver Award was introduced in 1931 and is a council‐level distinguished service award of the Boy Scouts of America. Recipients of this award are registered Scouters who have made an impact on the lives of youth through service given to the council. A limited number of Silver Beaver awards are made each year.

The Silver Beaver is the highest award a Council can bestow upon a volunteer for outstanding service to the Council and the youth that it serves. This outstanding group of Scouters have given their time, talent and treasure to the Council and have not gone unnoticed. The awards will be presented at the annual Council Recognition Dinner.

Family Friends of Scouting

Family Friends of Scouting

Friends of Scouting makes up 34% of the council's operating budget that goes to support programs, scout shops/offices, resident camps, properties, and assistance to individuals and families that couldn't otherwise afford to be involved or attend camps. Your unit's support of the Family FOS Campaign is needed and appreciated. The council's Family FOS Goal for 2018 is $250,000 with a goal of having every Family participate.

Your council wouldn't have a shot at reaching the goal without the support of units, leaders, and families. Please review (below) the great 2018 Unit Recognition and individual donor recognition for those that participate in Family Friends of Scouting this year. We encourage every unit to establish a FOS goal of 100% family participation and a dollar goal using the formula below.

Also, we need your assistance in scheduling the best possible time to make a presentation at your unit. To schedule please contact your District Executive or CLICK HERE to let us know a good date, time, and location for your unit's presentation. (NOTE: Our Free Cloth Badges of Rank incentive in 2018 (highlighted below) starts with scheduling your presentation by February 16th).

Thank you for your support!
