Join us as we recognize all of the amazing adult volunteers who make our district's scouting program possible. As we start a new year, we want to thank each and everyone of our adult scouters who have dedicated so much of their time and passion to serve the youth of our community. The district's annual banquet is the one time each year that we come together for fellowship and gratitude to celebrate the accomplishments of our district, our units, and our Eagle Scouts!
