As the District Recognition Dinner Chairman again this year I would like to
ask the list for some advice.
In past years we have invited the current class of Eagle scouts to attend
this adult recognition function. There are some people complaining that the
Eagles shouldn't be there. They say the dinner should only be for adults,
that the Eagles get their recognition during their personal COH.
Our Council, though its been hotly debated, does not currently hold an Eagle
Dinner. There is no other forum for either District or Council recognition.
I'm planning on holding my first committee meeting within a few weeks, and
would like to hear how other districts handle this issue. Personally, I
think we should invite them. They are the reason we all come together in
the first place, and those that have reached our highest goal should be
honored by the district. I also think it helps that Cub leaders get a
chance to see what their efforts can lead to.
What say the group?
