After reading your note, composing mine, going around a few times =
on the issues, and rereading your note to see if my head was on
right, I ended up agreeing with some of your adults who want a =
separate adult recognition dinner. Bringing in the Eagles changes
the focus to the Eagles and the adults can easily be forgotten.
If you want a youth recognition dinner or an Eagle recognition
dinner have those as separate focussed events.
We have several well organized Council recognition dinners that =
I am aware of including A Scouter Recognition Banquet, An Eagle =
Recognition Dinner, and A Distinguished Citizen Dinner.
At the Scouter Recognition Dinner they do things like Cubmaster
Award of Merit, Distinguished Commissioners Award, Heroism Award,
Silver Beaver etc.
At our council's Eagle Recognition Dinner they invite the Eagle,
the parent/guardians, adult leaders who wish to attend beside the =
family. Dignitaries are invited to speak, and often an Inspirational
Speaker. A bit more than this occurs yet you get the idea done well
and inclusive not just for the adults and Eagle focussed.
If you want to discuss the Eagle Recognition Dinner as an idea you
probably should start a new tread so I can dust off my first note
as I ran off with diarrhea of the fingers on Eagle Recognition =
Dinners. I ended up with +'s and -'s for this event whereas the
Scouter Recognition Banquet was a hands down winner.
You might consider suggesting that each troop or adult who comes to =
the dinner can bring a scout or two from their troop, letting the
adults decide whether its a Tiger, Bear, Star or Eagle.
YiS, IMHO, and may we each attempt to live the SO,SL,SS,SM

P.S. Hope you bent or made a new rule in those =
