2019 Silver Comet District Conductor Award Nominations

Posted on Jan 11 2020 - 11:25pm

The Silver Comet District Conductor Award is for any adult in your unit that you feel deserves recognition for service to scouting that goes “above and beyond”. They might be the Assistant Leader that is always there when help is needed, the Committee Member that somehow keeps the accounts straight, or maybe that parent that keeps everything organized and moving forward. They do not have to be a registered Scouter to be nominated for this award. The Conductor Awards are announced at our District Banquet, which will be held on March 12th, 2020 at McEachern United Methodist Church.

Nominations should be submitted on the Silver Comet Conductor Award nomination form by February 29th, 2020 to our Conductor Award Coordinator, Clint Pope, at: conductor@silvercometdistrictbsa.org.

Or mail to: Clint Pope, 2856 Summit Ridge Dr., Marietta, GA 30066.

One nomination per 25 registered youth in your Unit.

(1-25 registered Youth=1 nomination, 26-50=2 nominations, 51-75=3 nominations, etc.)

The list of previous honorees is available here at the bottom of the page.

Thanks To All Our Latter-day Saints Scouters, Past and Recent

Posted on Jan 4 2020 - 9:21pm

To all of our Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints Scouters,

Thank you for the countless hours you have devoted to the mission of Scouting; preparing young people to make ethical and moral choices over their lifetimes by instilling in them the values of the Scout Oath and the Scout Law.

Thank you to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints on New Macland Road, who graciously hosted our monthly Roundtable meeting for the past six years. You opened your doors to a fledgling merged district that needed a place for Scouters to fellowship on a monthly basis, and truly made us feel at home.

Many of the names we see listed in the Silver Comet Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints Units have served Scouting for more than a decade, and have presented the Scouting program to many, many youth over those years, giving them the opportunity to experience the personal growth and individual challenges and successes that the Scouting program offers. It has been an honor and a pleasure to serve with you on the Scouting journey.

We hope that many of you will continue Scouting in traditional Units, offering your remarkable talents and dedication to upcoming generations of young people as they each begin to make their way in the world.

Yours in Scouting,
