Yours in Scouting,
The 2014 Thunderbird Volunteer Recognition Dinner is almost upon us. Hopefully your Cubmaster, Scoutmaster, or Crew Advisor has already told you about the dinner and you are planning to attend.
This year the dinner is once again being held at the Wild Flower Restaurant and Catering in the Central West End. Last year, the Wild Flower provided a wonderful event and we are looking forward to another this year.
The address is 4590 Laclede Ave, St. Louis, MO 63108. The dinner is Friday, January 17th and doors will open at 6:30 with dinner being served at 7:00. We will also have some entertainment during the gathering and dinner. Cost is $25 per person.
The Wildflower is located just a block south of the Council Service Center. Parking will be available in the back lot of the service center.
All volunteer leaders are encouraged to attend and share in some fellowship with their fellow Scouters. The evening will include reports on the state of the district and council, and will culminate with the presentation of the District Award of Merit, the Eagle Within, to two individuals. The District Award of Merit is the highest award a district can bestow upon a volunteer.
New this year is the Spark Plug Award. This is recognition for an individual in a Pack, Troop, or Crew who through their constant efforts, is a driving force in their unit. Each Pack, Troop, and Crew can nominate one leader for this recognition. The nomination form can be found below and must be submitted by the January Roundtable meeting on January 6th.
