Posted on Mar 16 2018 - 5:26pm

At our 4th Annual Silver Comet District Awards Banquet on Thursday March 8th, three of our most engaged and deserving Scouters were honored with the District Award of Merit.

Mike Calvert, our long serving and popular Activities and Civic Service Chair, Samantha Schuster, our truly dedicated and super motivated Training Chair, and David Stockwell, one of our longest serving, consistent, and enthusiastic District Eagle Board Chairs were recognized for their many years of outstanding service to the Scouts and Scouters in their Units, in our District, and in our Council.
The time, experience, and expertise these three individuals have so generously devoted to Scouting over the years have brought many memorable experiences and the true Spirit of Scouting to the Scouts, and to their fellow Scouters throughout our District.

Congratulations to Mike, Samantha, and David, and Thank You from all of us for your outstanding contributions to Scouting, and to our Silver Comet Scouts.
