Unit Volunteer Recognition Reception

Instead of having a District Dinner this year all of the Districts in the Council will be holding a District Reception at the Council Volunteer Banquet on Saturday, May 4th at the Scottish Rite Cathedral in Harrisburg . The cost to attend is $30 per person and that includes hors d’oeuvres and a plated meal. It is also being held on a Saturday night so more people can attend. The District Awards of Merit will be handed out at the district reception and the highlight of the evening will be the presentation of the Silver Beaver Awards.

A guest speaker will also be present at the event as well. Vice Admiral Dan McCarthy will be this years guest speaker. Vice Admiral Dan McCarthy retired from the Navy in 2007 and became the Group Director of the BSA’s Summit Bechtel Reserve. As Group Director he oversaw the development and the operation of the Summit.
