Council Recognition Luncheon
Saturday, March 27, 2021
The Council Recognition Luncheon will be held in-person at the Capital Credit Union Scout Center in Bismarck and the Wanzek Center for Scouting in Fargo. The luncheon will start at Noon for those in attendance.
The program will be broadcast using Go to Webinar and is scheduled to run from 12:25 – 1:00 pm (central). Those that can’t attend in person can watch the broadcast on Go to Webinar.
Since the Recognition Luncheon was cancelled in 2020 due to the pandemic, we will be presenting Silver Beaver Awards to those volunteers selected in 2020 in addition to those selected in 2021. The 2020 recipients have already been notified with this information.

Order of the Arrow
Are your scouts looking for the next thing in their scouting path? Order of the Arrow is a great way to get more involved in scouting and community service. Great leadership opportunities exist, more opportunities for growth, greater ability to travel, and a better way to create friendships throughout the Council.
