Volunteers to receive awards from Boy Scout Council
KAHULUI – The Maui County Boy Scouts Council announced that its Annual Dinner will be held on Saturday, Jan. 21, at 5:30 p.m. at the LDS Maui Lani Stake Center.
At the event, the council will honor Grant Chun, Eric Nagamine and Jamie Wright with the Silver Beaver Award. Ira Uradomo and James Brent will be honored with the District Award of Merit.
The Silver Beaver was introduced in 1931 as the highest scouting award given at the local council level. The award recognizes volunteers for consistent, dedicated service to the area’s youth, both in and out of scouting, over their tenure as a volunteer.
The District Award of Merit is presented to any registered scouter who renders service of an outstanding nature.
“The Silver Beaver is one of the few national awards presented by the local council; we will also be recognizing our District Award of Merit for scouters with outstanding service in their respected areas,” said Robert Nakagawa, MCC scout executive. “We are honored to have the opportunity to recognize our volunteers in this way and grateful for their years of devoted service. It is only because of the leaders with this type of dedication that we are able to serve more than 1,000-plus local youth.”
Admission is $180 for a catered table of eight, or $25 per person for a catered meal.
