The Mount Baker Council is blessed with many eager and dedicated volunteers. Join us on Saturday, June 9th as we honor six of these outstanding volunteers for their contribution to the Council and the community by awarding them the Silver Beaver service award.
The Silver Beaver was first presented in 1931 and is the highest national award that a Council can bestow to a volunteer within its territory. Silver Beaver recipients are proposed and approved without the knowledge of the individual’s request or participation. Nominations are made by fellow Scouters and community members in recognition of outstanding service.
