Ice Cream Social Report

Posted on Jun 12 2021 - 9:51pm

A hearty number of Scouters came out last Thursday for our District Ice Cream Social! It was a very busy evening - we celebrated the families and Cubs who participated in our first ever Virtual Pinewood Derby, we gave out Journey to Excellence Awards, Silver Comet Conductor Awards, and three prestigious District Awards of Merit!

The District would like to thank Huddle House for its generous donation of all the ice cream and toppings, and Sharla Stewart and Jayme Smith for all their hard work in prepping all the toppings! Thank you to Clint Pope who coordinated the Conductor Awards. The District would also like to thank our hard-working Field Director, George Snipes, and District Executives, Claude Gatlin and David Hood, who prepared all the JTE ribbons and the District Award of Merit plaques, certificates, and knots.

Our 2020 District Award of Merit recipients are Tracye Kamperman, Sharla Stewart, and Lindsey Nolan. Be sure to congratulate these hard working volunteers the next time you see them, they have all gone above and beyond in their service to the Scouts and Scouters of Silver Comet!
