Advancement and Recognition
It’s time to recognize the Scouters in our district and units that do such a great job providing a quality program for the youth in our area. Please discuss with your units and take a minute to think about who these special folks are and nominate them, so they can be properly recognized at the upcoming district dinner on January 26th. See the list of awards below.
The award form can be printed or typed and can be submitted by either email, personal delivery or postal mail as follows:
The District Advancement and Recognition Committee is tasked with keeping units up to date with changing scouting programs, maintaining advancement records, overseeing Eagle Scout projects, administering the merit badge program, and ensuring scouts, scouters and units are properly recognized for their achievements.

Scouts BSA - Important Implementation Details Related to Earning the Eagle Scout Rank
On February 1, 2019, the Boy Scouts of America will begin admitting girls into Scouts BSA (formerly the Boy Scout program).
Please be sure that your unit's Committee Chair, or whomever will be handing the recharter, is able to make this training. We will be going over the recharter process in detail and will be able to answer any questions.
Congratulations to all the scouters that were honored at the annual district recognition dinner on Saturday:
BSA is rolling out updated, revised requirements for all Scouting ranks, from Scout to Eagle. This page has information and resources to help unit leaders, parents, and scouts navigate how the changes affect them.
