It's all about the hat....
One of the hallmarks of being an honoree at a National Capital Area Council event is receiving your official Scoutmaster hat and neckerchief. As you can see, everyone gets a lot of enjoyment as they put on this historical piece of the Scouting uniform.
Here are some photographs from several of our recent special events.
