100th Anniversary of the Eagle Scout Award set for Nov. 29 | Community Spirit
On Thursday, November 29th, the Indian Waters Council of the Boy Scouts of American will host “A Salute to Eagle Scouts”, a special dinner to honor all Eagle Scouts in celebration of the highest honor that can be bestowed upon a Boy Scout and has positively transformed lives and our nation over the past 100 years.
This event is open to the public and is sure to attract current and former Boy Scouts, Eagle Scouts of all ages, and their families.
The special guest speaker for the evening will be Wayne Brock, Eagle Scout and newly named Chief Scout Executive of the Boy Scouts of America.
A barbeque dinner will be provided at a cost of $20 per person; however it’s important to note that there will be no charge for Eagle Scouts under the age of 18 and for service men and women.
The event will be held at the National Guard Armory on Bluff Road and is expected to draw about 800 people.
The Indian Waters Council serves more than 10,000 youth and adult members in eight counties here in the Midlands, and awards over 100 Eagle Scout awards each year.
