Council Recognition Dinner

The Council Recognition Dinner is held every year in February and honors the previous year’s Scouts that have obtained the rank of Eagle Scout and our appointed Silver Beavers. The evening kicks off with a reception featuring Eagle Scout projects followed by a dinner recognition program.

In 2016, celebrating our newly minted 2015 Eagle Scouts, Venturing Summit Recipients & Silver Beavers, the Council Recognition Dinner will be held at the Doubletree Hilton, San Jose on Saturday, February 27, 2016.

Have you heard about our NEW
Sponsorship Program?

In years past we have relied on Eagle Sponsorships to off-set the cost of their attendance at the Council Recognition Dinner. We have created a new and exciting sponsorship program in order to save additional funds for our council & Scouting programs as well as increase the recognition our Scouts have earned.

We invite you to participate! This year’s program catalog will be a full color, gloss, bound program. A keepsake for all Scouts! Individuals, families, and local businesses are now invited to pay tribute to their Eagle Scouts/Silvers/Silver Beavers and/or advertise their local companies.

Please consider sponsoring an Eagle Scout/Venturing-Summit recipient and place an ad in our new beautifully, redesigned program catalog and help us continue to make this a memorable evening. Download the Sponsorship Form today!

We look forward to celebrating another
successful year in 2016!
