[Troop222All] Scoutmaster Updates: February 24nd, 2014

Congratulation to our own Bev Hastings:
I was the first to congratulate Bev Hastings for being won of this year’s Pacific Skyline council’s Silver Beaver recipient.  Most of you don’t know that Bev is extremely active in scouting outside of our troop.  She volunteers at the district and council level with all sorts of training.  Her son aged out of Troop 222 several years ago, but her involvement has been steadfast.  Her formal recognition will be held on March 4th at the annual Council Awards Dinner. 


nullAnnual Council Awards Dinner – Mar 4 
Come honor the recipients of the Silver Beaver Award. The Silver Beaver Award is presented by the National Council, Boy Scouts of America, through the local council to adult volunteer Scouters for their distinguished service to youth and their community. It is the highest award a Boy Scout council can bestow upon a volunteer Scouter. We will be honoring: Brent Browning, David Dye, Bev Hastings, James Katoa, and Emma Shelton. Click here for more info.
