  • Thank you to Troop 11 and First Presbyterian for hosting this event. Thank you to the 5 Troops that sponsored the food: 9, 11, 260. ? ? I’d like to ask that older adults be allowed first in line and followed by families. Scouts, to be first, you must go last in line. While they are serving food, scouts may get their drinks, to save time. Try to keep this event short and very sweet. Housekeeping: the restrooms are through that doorway. Thank you.
  • Steve Luck
  • The next 2 slides list the 2009 and 2010 District Officers. I’d like to thank the men and women who have served. There are a few open positions and there’s no lifetime appointments. So please contact Paul Winston if you’d like more information. Hey, it’s an adventure!
  • We have asked Roy Gullick and Bud Heide to preside over the swearing in of the 2010 District Officers.
  • Please ask them to line up in front of the podium for a group photo.
  • I’d like to congratulate all of the boy’s. Are any present? Mac? I had the opportunity to meet all three of them, almost 2 summers ago. They were all in Lee Lewis’ Crew when we went to Philmont. Eagle present, don’t forget about that Eagle project. It might qualify you for some serious moo-lah. Now you know, the NESA.
  • He was canoeing in the deeper, upper lake at COI. He rescued younger scouts. His story was described in Boys Life magazine. Shelby, thanks for keeping head. Member of Troop 9.
  • I’ll read the names. Ask the recipients to come forward to the facing right side to receive their award from Steve Morrison. Then stay there for a group photo. Please hold you applause until the end. Spark plugs are one type of thank you awards given to people who really get things moving.
  • Paul and Steve stand here to give the award and for the photo. Award winners, could you please come up this your right side of the podium to receive your award and have a photo taken. Thank you. Folks the best place for a photo will be here on the right side.

  • Brenda has assisted the District for many years in many different capacities. She’s taught merit badges, assisting with MBU, and camporees. I might add that her sons and husband are all Eagle scouts too. I’d like to congratulate Brenda Witthuhn on being the 2010 Boy Scouter of the Year.
