Every year Scouts and Scouters from the Goose Creek District gather together to break bread with one another. Aside from providing an engaging venue for good fellowship, it is the principal forum for the conveyance of awards. These awards include the Unit Volunteer of the Year, the prestigious “Key Three” Award and the District Award of Merit. In addition to these awards special recognition is made of Scouts who have advanced to the rank of Eagle in the previous year. This year the Annual Goose Creek District Dinner and Awards Banquet will be held at the ADAMS Center in Sterling, Virginia on May 13th, 2011 from 5:30PM – 8:30PM.
This, the social event of the season, is always marked by an upscale venue, four star cuisine, world class entertainment and resplendent attendance. You will note that this Dinner and Award Banquet is being held on a Friday in order to keep the paparazzi at bay so that none of our valued attendees are troubled by the hounding of the press. Should you have particular dietary needs please send a note to our Executive Chef and we will see if the menu can be adjusted to accommodate your circumstances. You may reserve your space online or via the mails (if reliant upon your local postal carrier please click here and print and mail in your check to the listed address).
Please note that while the “Key Three” Awards and the District Awards of Merit are selected at the District level the Unit Volunteer of the Year is selected at Pack, Troop and Crew level. The Unit Volunteer of the Year is that individual who has distinguished themselves through action, effort or contribution and is not limited to registered Scouters. This award can be made to Mom who cooks at every camp out, the Dad who runs your Pinewood Derby every year or the former Scout that pitches in with the Troop ever time he comes home from college on a break. Each unit may identify their Volunteer of the Year to be recognized at the Dinner – for more details click here.
