2018 Silver Comet District Award of Merit Recipients

Posted on Mar 16 2019 - 10:58pm

At our 5th Annual District Banquet on Thursday, March 14th, four outstanding scouters were honored with the District Award of Merit for their many years of outstanding service to the Scouts and Scouters in their Units, in our District, and in our Council.

Our 2018 honorees are: Hank Blake, our dedicated District Commissioner; Tim Davis, our Cubmaster Breakout Leader at Roundtable; Mike Kozar, who has served as the Scoutmaster for ITOLS for many years; and Randy Thacker, the Scoutmaster of Troop 350 who has devoted countless hours to making our annual Turkey Shoot an overwhelming success.

The time, experience, and expertise these 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 Hank, Tim, Mike, and Randy, and thank you for your outstanding contributions to Scouting, and to our Silver Comet Scouts.
