In Scouting, we say “it’s about the youth” and none of our adults are involved for the recognition, but every now and then we need to say thanks especially to those volunteers whose leadership and example has left a lasting positive impact on the program and the broader community. One was we do that is through nominating a Scouter for the Silver Beaver Award, the highest adult recognition a council can bestow.

Please join the Mayflower Council in congratulating this years Silver Beaver Honorees.

Presentation of the Silver Beaver will be made at the Council Annual Recognition Dinner on Wednesday, January 29, 2020 at Lake Pearl in Wrentham, MA. We hope you can join us to recognize these outstanding volunteers as they are recognized for their outstanding service to scouting and their communities.
