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. This year’s dinner is scheduled for November 24.
After thoughtful consideration and discussion, the planning committee has decided to conduct The 11th Annual Eagle Scout Recognition Dinner virtually on Tuesday, November 24.It will come as no surprise to anyone that attempting to safely hold this event (which typically draws over 700 attendees) in the middle of the COVID-19 pandemic is a primary concern. The health and safety of our youth members, leaders, Scouting families, and guests is always our foremost priority. For further details on the decision please CLICK HERE.
This year’s event will recognize 198 Eagle Scouts in the Class of 2020 for their achievement in earning Scouts BSA’s highest award which only 4% of all Scouts have earned. The event will host over 700 prominent business and community leaders celebrating with south-central Pennsylvania’s future leadership along with their family. This premier event, to be held virtually, also serves as the largest fundraising event to support local Scouting in the New Birth of Freedom Council.

Matthew Lutcavage, Vice President of Human Resources, The GIANT Company, and Thomas Cormier, Government Affairs Manager, Retail Business Services, serves as this year’s DinnerChairmen.
