Eagle Scout Recognition Dinner

Each year, the Eagle Scout Recognition Dinner brings together the business community, Scout leaders, and Scouting families to recognize the outstanding accomplishments of that year’s Eagle Scout class. It’s a great evening of celebration for everyone who attends and a source of tremendous pride for the New Birth of Freedom Council.

The 14th Annual Eagle Scout Recognition Dinner at the Hershey Lodge will be on Tuesday, November 21.

This year’s event will recognize 170 Eagle Scouts in the Class of 2023 for their achievement in earning Scouts BSA’s highest award, which only 4% of all Scouts have earned.  The event will host 650 prominent business and community leaders celebrating south-central Pennsylvania’s future leadership and their families.  This premier event is the largest fundraising event to support local Scouting in the New Birth of Freedom Council.


Steve Massini is the 2023 Eagle Scout Dinner Honoree.  Steve is the Chief Executive Officer of Penn State Health based out of Hershey, PA.
Jeff Smith, General Manager of Alexander Building Construction Co., serves as this year’s Dinner Chairman.


Earning the rank of Eagle Scout is not a journey accomplished alone. Many help support this achievement, especially the Eagle Scouts family and Scoutmaster. For family members of Eagle Scouts in this year’s class, we provide you with a reduced ticket price to cover the cost of the meal to be a part of the celebration. There is no cost to attend for Eagle Scouts and their Scoutmaster, but we ask that you send in your reservation form to account for your meal. All Eagle Scouts in the class should upload their photo and bio to be included in the yearbook.  Please find the helpful links below:
