The purpose of the Council Recognition Dinner is to recognize and thank all adult volunteer Scouters who have given their time to provide a quality Scouting program to the youth of our communities, and also to recognize the youth who have distinguished themselves with achieving the rank of Eagle Scout. The highlight of the event will be the awarding of the Silver Beaver Award, the highest award a council can bestow upon a volunteer, to several deserving Scouters. The Council Recognition Dinner is for all adult leaders within the council, not just council and district level Scouters, and all Scouts who achieved the Eagle Scout rank in the past year and their parents. Silver Beaver recipients and Eagle Scouts will be guests of the council. Sponsors for the Eagle Scouts are being solicited.
Recognizing Leaders Everyone needs a pat on the back occasionally. Recognizing the efforts of your leaders and parents goes a long way toward getting and keeping them involved. A simple “thank you” at a pack meet or court of honor is absolutely necessary. Follow up with a note or phone call. A fancy plaque or purchased certificate isn’t always necessary or even appropriate. A small block of wood, hand-lettered, is sometime most treasured. Fit the recognition to the person for whom it is intended. Be creative. Small items found around the house often make great awards! If the volunteer is in a leadership position which has a training award available, keep track of their progress and make sure that the proper forms are filled out and processed. If your unit consistently recognizes leaders, they will want to stay. If they feel that they are contributing to the success of your unit, they will want to stay. All of this goes back to getting the right person to do the right job.
