District Awards Breakfast

Come on out and honor your fellow Scouters! We will be serving a great meal at the Bayside Awards Breakfast. There are many different awards that you can nominate your unit leaders for.  The minimum requirements for each award are given in the awards package.  The Awards Selection Committee is particularly interested in your reasons why you feel a Scouter, Cubber or Commissioner deserves to be recognized.  Nominations for the District Award of Merit and all other awards are due February 11, 2017.

Award winners will be announced at the District Breakfast on Saturday, April 1, 2017, at St John’s Lutheran Church in Norfolk.  This meal will be open to not only Scouts but also to youth.

Award information packages were sent out to all Unit Leaders and can be found on the district webpage.  Marianne West has agreed to chair the dinner again. Gina Montour is the chair of the awards committee.
